He was first told that he had testicular cancer on the 14/02/19. What first started as a general check up at his local GP quickly turned into a series of scans and tests and ended with being admitted into hospital for emergency surgery to have the cancerous tumour removed all within 24 hours. Surgery went well but unfortunately the CT scans and blood tests taken the next day indicated that the cancer had spread to the lymph nodes in his abdominal area. Due to the severity of the spread he was told that he would need chemotherapy. He started the chemotherapy treatment two weeks later, on the 4/03/19 and has since received 3 full cycles of chemotherapy treatment.
On the 06/05/19 the third cycle of chemotherapy treatment was completed however the test results indicted that although he had received a maximum dosage of chemotherapy, it has not been completely successful and major surgery is now required in order to remove the remaining tumour. The RPLND surgery is a massive operation that not only has a huge recovery time but also has a lot of possible complications that may affect the rest of his life. It is now believed that Nick may not be well enough to work again until the New Year.
Nick and Steph his Partner, have had to move back in with Steph's family due to Nick no longer being able to work, leaving them with one income and adding a lot more financial stress. Steph currently spends long hours at the hospital supporting Nick through his treatment and then continues to work full time hours hairdressing. This is why we are all stepping in to raise some funds to help alleviate some of the financial stress that comes with a serious health challenge like cancer.
We would be so appreciative if everyone could dig deep and help our amazing Nick and his family through this time.
Thank you so much and positive vibes all around to get him through.
