Upcoming Events

Thank you to everyone who attended Nick’s Run to be Healed 5K. It was a beautiful day filled with laughter and families
coming together. 

I come to this event today noting the significance of the miracle that is before me. The first two miracles are my two sons, Nick
and Stephen. I was blessed to have Nick for 13 years and Stephen will be turning 21. I see so many children who have battled
cancer, are currently battling, or are dealing with the secondary effects of their disease. I see families like mine who lost their
child to cancer and are struggling to understand how life can continue without them. It takes so much more than medicine to
heal a child. We want them to lead a fulfilling and healthy life, both physically and emotionally. I remember the first day I met Ali.
We were standing by the elevators of the Melodies Center. His family and one of my friends are close so we made that connection.
Ali showed me the chemo shirt that he was given by another foundation. He only had to unzip it and the nurse had access to his
port. He was so excited by this. Every time I saw him he would make eye contact and greet me by my name with a big smile. Ali’s
family and all the families that take the time from their children’s battle to walk, run, raise money and awareness teach me the
power of miracles and that through
giving back we heal.

 

We are a team that keeps growing. No matter what your child is diagnosed with, it’s that common fear of the unknown that
paralyzes us. The need to know that others have walked in your footsteps and have prevailed makes events like this so powerful.
And to keep growing, to keep bringing support where it is needed most, we branch out and connect with other foundations. Like
Maddie’s Mark, Catie Hoch, Kelsey’s Promise, Nicole’s Hope, Green Drakkoman and Ballsfest. We connected with JP Honsinger’s
family who have teens that want to give back to children with life-threatening illnesses, so they came to our Nick’s Round Table teen
meeting and helped prepare for this run. We are a community of connectors. When one of ours struggles, we band together. So as
we grow and Nick’s Fight ventures into more areas of emotional support like our yoga and writing programs, we will ask others to
take on some of what we have brought to The Melodies Center.                       

 

Our children are at the heart of our mission. Coming together like this with the common goal of healing our children and supporting
their siblings and families emotionally, financially, and socially will not change. It will get stronger and more impactful. Thank you to
everyone who worked so hard for this event. My board of directors, the volunteers, the families, the Town of Clifton Park, the EMS,
police department, fire department, and our sponsors. But I especially thank Ali and his family who have taught me that no matter
where you are, with love, hope and faith, you can get through anything.
