Ammons Family Fund

In January of 2017, Nick Ammons was relaxing with his kids following a Sunday family dinner. Suddenly, he suffered from a seizure that led to the discovery of a brain tumor. Within days, Nick had brain surgery to remove most of the tumor which they discovered  was a rare and malignant grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma. 

This type of cancer has no cure and treatment options are limited. After undergoing chemotherapy and 33 treatments of radiation, Nick and his family are also considering alternative methods to fight this challenging and life changing diagnosis. 

Nick's attitude has remained positive and strong, and with the unwavering help of his wife he has continued to be a loving dad to his 4 kids. He has been a union carpenter for 15 years and also volunteers as a youth football coach and president of the Lombard Falcons junior football league. For years, Nick has enjoyed playing weekly games of basketball at the local elementary school. He's an all around good guy. 

Please help us support Nick, his wife Jessica Ammons (Wojcik), and their 4 children: Kyler, Cash, Lennon, and Ellison during this difficult time.

From the time of diagnosis through surgery, rehabilitation, and treatment the financial impact on a family dealing with brain cancer can be close to $700,000. The money we raise here will be used to help cover the cost of Nick's growing medical bills as well as provide Nick with the means of exploring natural treatment options for his brain cancer.
