On May 8, 2018, Nico passed out at and was to Gilbert Mercy and later to Phoenix Children’s Hospital where they found an inoperable, cancerous, terminal brain tumor. Two days later Nico had his first brain surgery to remove hydrocephalus. Soon after Nico had a brain biopsy, however, it was unsuccessful. Instead of telling the family immediately, the doctors waited 2 months, at which time it was too dangerous to do. It's believed he had a rare or never before seen cancer as he displays so different than any other case.
In the spring of 2019 the doctors could only promise 3 years of life left. From there they hold onto hope, love, prayer, and words of encouragement for Nico. Their strength & resilience is absolutely astonishing. At the end of 2019 Nico had two more EMERGENCY brain surgeries, one after life saving measures saved him. Weeks later Nico went into a coma like state for several days. That's why I ride for HIM.
