Help Nikolas Fight Cancer

Dear Friends and Family,

Our family has gone through a tragedy that has changed our life and  divided it into "before" and "after." Our oldest grandson, Nikolas, who is 3.5 years old was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive type of cancer called neuroblastoma.

On July 18th, Nikolas had a very complicated surgery that lasted more than 8 hours during which the the tumor and one of his kidneys were removed. However, the surgery is not a cure, and Nikolas has a tough road ahead. His treatment will include chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. 


We pray and hope that Nikolas will come through it all and return to his happy and healthy self. 

Our daughter-in-law, Marina, has been taking care of Nikolas all day and night, while also caring for Nicky's brother, who is 10 months old. Prior to the illness, Marina was working full time, but now she hopes that she can keep her job part time, at least so that she can keep the family's health insurance.

We hope to raise funds to help Nikolas and his family through this difficult time. If you are not in a position to donate, please help by sharing this page with your friends and family. We are grateful for your understanding and support.
