Rare Brain Tumor Treatment for Nick

Nick was recently diagnosed with a subependymoma which is a rare brain tumor.  It is located near the brain stem making it extremely difficult to remove.  Family and friends are exhausting resources trying to find one of the few neurosurgeons with experience removing this type of tumor.   We also are likely going to have insurance battles, since his surgery requires a neurosurgon with experience with this rare tumor.  

Most people are well aware of the burden that medical procedures of this nature can be, and how difficult it is to ask for financial help.  

Those of you that know Nick, know that he has one of the best brains around, so please help us to keep it intact.

We all love Nick so much and can't imagine life without him.   Help us make his path to recovery.

Love: Hannah, Jillian, Carson, Beth, Joe, Tara, Lloshio, Martin, Elsa and all the other people who love Nick.
