Last December Nick was granted a wish with the Marty Lyons Foundation www.martylyonsfoundation.org/ and was able to meet Stephen Curry and watch the Golden State Warriors play. We also were able to enjoy a family vacation together in San Francisco. It was a lot of fun! We are very grateful the the Marty Lyons foundation for that opportunity!
Now we are moving forward and have been approved to proceed with the kidney transplant aiming for February 2017 which will mark Nick being cancer free for 2 years!

Dec 1, 2015 We received word from the Dr. that we will be doing dialysis for another year.

This is disappointing to Nick but at least we do see a light at the end of the tunnel.
