Nick has stage 4 colorectal cancer that has grown and metastasized after surgery and many rounds of chemo. He was first diagnosed 4 years ago and has no other conventional options available. Initially Nick was raising funds specifically to go to Chipsa Hospital in Mexico. Nick found out about Chipsa from his wife Joan because her sister in law went there with a 1 to 6 month prognosis (stage 4 nasopharyngeal cancer) in 2016 and in 2019 is still No Evidence of Disease. The funds for Chipsa just were not coming in and so Nick and Joan were praying for direction. On July 29, 2019, they found out from the VA that Nick has at least 19 genetic mutations so they are now focusing their search for clinics and hospitals that specialize in customized plans based on genetic and epigenetic evidence. They are currently considering a clinic in Arizona and a couple of others. All of these would require around 80 to 100k and an 8 week to 12 week stay.
Nick has 4 children and 2 grandchildren. Two of his sons are grown and his 2 youngest children, a son and a daughter, are 13 years old. He would really love to be here to see his children and grandchildren grow up.
Nick has served his community as a firefighter and also his country where he served in the Army in Iraq during Desert Shield/Desert Storm.
We humbly ask that you would consider donating so he can get the treatment he needs as soon as possible. We hope you are blessed to be part of Nick's radical remission and miraculous journey to cancer freedom!
