Meet Nicholas: March 2017

Nicholas’ mom writes, “Nicholas was diagnosed with Metastasized Ewing’s Sarcoma on March 10th, 2015. 5 days before his 8th birthday. His main tumor was in his right tibia. He had a spot on his hip, spine, and lesions on his lungs. He also had a tumor in his heart. In March 2015 he had open heart surgery to remove the tumor in his heart because they could not treat him with it in there. It would have shriveled up and broke apart and went in his lungs and killed him. He had his port placed in April 2015. He started strong chemo in April 2015. He finished in October 2015. He started maintenance chemo on December 2015 and stayed on it until January 2017. He also had radiation to the tumor on his leg and the one on his hip and spine. He had good scans until his scans on January 11th, 2017 when during a PET scan they found a spot on his right hip. On February 6th 2017, he started strong chemo again. He will do 5 days then have 2 weeks off. We were supposed to start a new cycle Feb. 27th, but due to his counts still being low we have to start a new cycle on March 6th. He will have 2 weeks off. Then the week of March 20th they will do scans again to make sure the new chemo is working. And then we will start radiation on the spot on his hip.”

This road is so long and is an up and down roller coaster for all who are asked to travel its path. Please pray for Nicholas and his family, for healing, comfort, and strength to endure. Pray for Nicholas’ upcoming birthday on March 15th that he will have an amazing 10th Birthday without having to think about chemo or hospital visits!

Happy 10th Birthday friend, may you celebrate and enjoy all the things turning DOUBLE DIGITS has to offer!
