Help Nick with his final expenses

Hello Everyone,

People that Nick have touched know that he is a very kind hearted man.  No one would of thought he would be battling an illness called CANCER.  Never in my mind that it could happen to him when he is full of life in so many ways!!! But CANCER came to his life in 2014.  He had undergone a few different types of chemotherapy, naturopathatic therapy, and radiations, thinking that it would stop at least stop the growth of the cancer cells. Unfortunately, the cancer along with all the treatments have taken a toll of his quality of life.  Quality of life is and always will be his goal but with this illness it will never be the same.  Everyday he is always in pain.  As a loved one goes through the terrible pain that cancer brings, it makes me angry because I, his wife can't take the pain away from him.  It breaks my heart everytime he ends up in the ER because of pain. Along the way, he have had been hospitalized with ruptured gall bladder, blood clots in his lungs, pneumonia, etc. We tried everything but the cancer in him keeps growing.

On July 24th 2017, visiting his Oncologist, he have decided that the battle is over and he is

ready to take a new journey...he decided to go with hospice.  He said, as much as he wish he could be here on earth a little bit longer to be with his family and friends, his body is not allowing him to do so due to cancer.  He feels that it is the right thing to to be with his Mom and sister in heaven.  As much as I would like him to stay with me forever, I agree, he need to rest and be pain free.  I know I  won't be ever be ready for him to go but I can't bare to see him in pain.  With this decision, Nick will only of less than 2 month or at least 2 months with us.  

I am creating this campaign to be able to help pay for his expenses that he has now and to give him a beautiful memorial service as his life is being celebrated.  He is going to be cremated per his request.  I do hope that you find it in your heart to help us make this memorable tribute for Nick.  Thank you!
