Nic Holcomb's Fight

"No, that can't be right.  Are you sure?  How can this be happening? "How is one supposed to react hearing this news... There it is, a 10"x7" (yes, inches) cancerous mass visible in Nic's chest following the CT scan, compromising vital organs like his heart, esophagus, and lungs.  Finally, though, there is an explanation for the non-stop months of coughing, lack of energy, and lately, the sudden vomiting and weight loss. 


Nic Holcomb is a vibrant, healthy, 33-year-old new father, and he has cancer.  Hodgkin's Lymphoma, to be exact.  And now it begins - the fight of a lifetime, the time to lean on friends, family, and his social worker wife, Leann, who is skilled beyond belief helping others through things like this, but never imagined it would hit home. 

Nic has a positive outlook and is confident that he can beat this, but he and Leann will need help in their fight.  Any and all support is GREATLY APPRECIATED!

By the numbers...

11 - Month old son, Cayden
6 - Months of chemo to go through before starting radiation treatment
5 - Months before doctors found the mass in Nic's chest
2 - Overwhelmed, wonderful people who need us during this trying time
1 - Session of chemo treatment down...
