Nick Gaspar's profile at Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF)

"Nick was a typical teenage boy completing middle school and getting ready to begin high school. He played basketball and lacrosse year round and was an overall excellent student. In May of 2021 at 14 years old, Nick was diagnosed with a NGGCT (Non-Germinomatous Germ Cell Tumor) in his brain. He began chemotherapy right away in hopes that his tumor would shrink. He was in the hospital for about one month before going to a rehabilitation center, where he was learning to walk again and strengthen his body.

In July, his scans showed that his tumor was growing and he would need surgery to remove it. In September, Nick underwent a 12 hour craniotomy. With some of the best surgeons in the world, they were able to remove the entire tumor. This was a true miracle! Nick continued his chemotherapy and then six weeks of radiation along with lots of PT and OT. On the day that he rang the bell, he celebrated with family at a Celtics game. During this time, Nick was able to keep up with school with a tutor and attend school when he could. Nick was finally getting back to life."
