ABOUT NICK AND THE FOUNDATION
Nick Price is a Freshman soccer player at Averett University. He was diagnosed with an exophytic pontine glioma brain tumor at age 15 on January 29, 2015. This is a tumor on the brain stem that was growing into the 4th ventricle of his brain. This is a very complex and hard to reach tumor in the pons area of the brain stem. The family traveled the country meeting with several different facilities and neurosurgeons to find someone who could remove the tumor without causing severe neurological deficits or worse. This part of the brain controls several vital functions of the body including voice, eyes, arms, legs, swallowing, and breathing. The family chose Drs. Sanai and Spetzler at Barrow Neurological in Phoenix, AZ. These two world renowned neurosurgeons specialize in brain stem tumors and partnered up to perform Nick's surgery. Nick had 2 surgeries - 2 days apart in mid June to remove the tumor that is now nearly 100% gone. It took him months to fully recover and now Nick is on a mission to help others that have been diagnosed with cancer. He has created and developed a nonprofit organization called the Nick Price Foundation that has helped families across the country. WE BELIEVE IN MIRACLES!
