Nickolas received a cancer diagnosis on 1-4-2023.

Hi. My name is Karin and I am fundraising for my husband. I have put this off because we are not comfortable asking for help. However, some good friends have strongly encouraged me to set this up for him.

Nickolas has stage 4 kidney cancer that has metastasized throughout his body, including his lungs and bones. Radiation has helped decrease his pain but he has not been able to get comfortable because he is just skin and bones at this point. His weight dropped to 126 last week but bounced back to 131 after two days of food tolerance.

He had a drain inserted into his right lung so that we can drain the fluid from his lungs at home. The pain and discomfort from that alone is enough to drive anyone crazy. We don't know how long he will need to have that in his body.

I am taking eight weeks off of work without pay to care for him. Thank you to the friends who have already sent gifts of money and otherwise!!!

I spent $250 on 20 pain pills for Nickolas immediately after his release from the hospital in January (first visit). I was unable to get reimbursed. Coincidentally, I received a total of $240 from friends!!! Others have offered to help but I thought I shouldn't accept. Please do not go overboard with your donations!! Small amounts will add up just fine.

Some of you already know that I've already paid approximately $3,700 for one month of Lenvima. I may be able to get reimbursed for that amount but we were just told that Nickolas may have to take this medication for the rest of his life. Unfortunately, the side effects are horrible.

He is also receiving Keytruda infusions every three weeks and will continue these treatments for two years.

We are both sending all of our friends and family our thanks for all of the love you have shared with us during this difficult time!! ❤️
