I would like to introduce you to my cousin Nicholas. He is a child who loves music, has a big heart and a contagious laugh. He has battled a cancerous tumor since age 11. Recently, the tumor stopped responding to the chemo therapy treatments and now he must go through radiation treatments over a course of two month at the Children’s Hospital. After a recovery period, Nicholas is scheduled to receive additional inpatient radiation treatments at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, California. This treatment will radiate from the inside out. This means an incision will be made in his abdomen where cylinders will be inserted into his tumor and radiation given through the cylinders. Due to the size and location of the tumor mesh will have to be placed over his organs and pulled close to his abdomen wall to prevent damage of other organs. This will be a very difficult treatment and Nick will lose a lot of nutrients because his abdomen will be open for the entire week during this treatment. On behalf of my family, I am asking for support, prayer(s) and contributions in reaching a goal of $3,000.00 their resources are exhausted. This will help my family with living and relocating expenses so that they may live close to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles
A week ago, I came to visit my family at the Ronald McDonald House to lend a hand where Nicholas and his mom, Cathy, have been living for over a year since Nicholas was flown in from Las Vegas, Nevada to California. While here, at the Ronald McDonald House, I have heard some amazing and wonderful stories of my cousin’s dedication to Nick and his medical care. I have learned, though she is going through difficult times herself, she is always supporting, encouraging and praying for other families. I was told how she makes a point to introduce herself to each family because she awakes every morning at 4 a.m. to pray for everyone. She encourages and invites families to visit or call when they are in need of inspiration or prayer. So I decided to tell her story to others in hope that her kindness will inspire other to pay it forward.
Due to Nicholas medical problems, she was terminated from her job, lost her apartment and her car, and lives off a very limited income to survive. She was told that she would have to move to California to get the medical treatment Nicholas requires. I’m asking for your help to raise funds because their resources are all exhausted and they are in immediate need for any contributions, large or small! Anyone who donates will receive a “N God’s time” or “TAKE A NICK OUT OF cancer” appreciation wristband. When requesting a wristband, email: cljaiteh@yahoo.com
Please help to continue to take a “NICK OUT OF cancer” by helping Nicholas and Cathy financially so they can move their belongings from Las Vegas, NV, to repair a used car, and find a place close to the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles, California. I ask your prayers that N GOD’S X his will be done!!!  Please read Nick's recent update in our continued efforts to reach a goal of 3.000.00 ~Merle Idlett
