Fresh Update

It has been a difficult few days. Last week we received the news that Nick’s tumor is growing again. We are out of reasonable treatment options, and we have a few short months left together. We have known this day was coming eventually, but you are never prepared to hear those words. We are at peace and committed to live these last days together as fully as we can. 

We are very aware & eternally grateful that we are blessed with unmatched community, not only our family but also our FUS family, our Ave Maria Radio family, our Spirits Sanctus family, our FGR family, our CTK family, and so many amazing friends. We are about to face the darkest of days, but we know we are not alone & grace abounds! 

We are making a list of needs and will be posting more about that soon as we button up some details. I promise we are open & eager for help! But as you wait for details, please continue to pray. 

Very soon I will write more and post updates to the website. We are so grateful for all of you!


  1. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10

    With those words I put you in God’s hands asking Him to hold your pain and sufferings. You are always remembered in my prayers and Masses.
    Remember “Jesus gives us hope because He keeps us company, has a vision and knows the way we should go.” – Max Lucado

  2. I was devastated when Al shared with his audience the situation with Nick. Although I’ve never met Nick I feel as if I know him personally because he and I have something in common: we’ve both had brain tumors. It was 30 years this past May 9 since my remove a astrocytoma and I’m still cancer free 30 years later. When I first learned of Nick’s illness, I began praying for him as my intention for the rosary. A couple of weeks before hearing the news from Al that things were not going well for Nick, he came to mind and I wondered how he was doing. I was devastated upon receiving the news. Just know that j you guys are in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you all and I look forward to meeting Nick in heaven.
