This site has been created to update family and friends on Nicks progress.  Please be patient with us as we have not done this before and will do the best we can.  Nick was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colorectal Cancer.  He started his journey in July after a colonoscopy found a mass that was later confirmed to be cancerous.  After his CT Scan, MRI, Biopsy and PET Scan the doctors have confirmed that this cancer has spread to his Liver, Lymph System and Lungs.  This cancer will need a miracle to be cured and massive treatment including Chemo-therapy and Radiation to be treated.  We drove to the Mayo Clinic today to meet with Dr. Kim to discuss the treatment plans that his doctor here at MN Oncology suggested.  Dr. Kim confirmed that Chemo is the best route for now.  With Nick being just 26 years old this has been a shocking diagnosis.  He will need your help, prayers and support.  Nick will begin his treatment in the next 10 days.  This will be an arduous two month process after which time the doctors will evaluate his progress and recommend further treatment.   We will send journal updates to keep you all as up to date as possible.  Please use this site to send your thoughts along to Nick as he will be reading them!!
