Nick's Dad Here,
As parents we want our children to become strong, independent and well rounded adults. However, during this process of becoming adults, as his father I seem to be going through a bit of separation anxiety which has been magnified by the cancer. Rolls have been reversed and Nick has been a source of strength and support from the very first day we learned of the tumor.
Nick and I visited Fenway Park today, home of the 2007 World Series Champions and the fabled Green Monster. Nick has handled this monster/crisis with confidence and determination and I am so proud of this special young man. Nick's journey has been filled with hopes, dreams, challenges and setbacks and he continues to address them head-on.
With Admiration,
Todd

Hi Nick! Glad the surgery went so well! Just sitting, waiting and praying for the final results! Todd's post echoes the same feelings I think most of your family is feeling right now. It is amazing to see how quickly you have grown up and your character that has been revealed by this battle. You continue to be an inspiration to everyone from the family that has grown up next to you to bloggers that have found your site over the internet. I am so thankful to have you as a cousin, and I truly aspire to have the resolve and postive attitude that you have kept! Keep it up!
Love,
Jessica

Hi Nick,

I have been very ovewhelmed and emotional over the blogs on your site the last few days. You, your Mom, Dad and Lee are very eloquent in describing the events to all of us that log on each day to see what is happening. I have been extremely thankful that your surgery was a success and that you are healing fast.
I want you to know I have always felt that you would inspire and heal many people. Your story which has been told with such grace, courage and dignity has truly been an inspiration to many - more people than you will ever know.
You are and will continue to be in my heart and prayers. I am so proud of you and will always love you! Love...Beci :)

Dear Nick,
I'm glad your dad made the trip to be with you in Boston. You are kindred spirits. I heard your spiritual peace in your dad's voice when he called after seeing you and I read it in his post. May love continue to overflow in all future adventures that await you both. Prayers and gratitude, Aunt Chris
