My son Nicholas Nelson was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma in May 2019. Prior to diagnosis, he was a youth triathlete. We are from Anchorage, Alaska and needed to travel outside for treatment due to the complex nature of this disease. He is being treated at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, MD and we are staying with my family nearby.
After 8 months of treatment, he had follow up scans which showed disease progression. He is currently entering a second round of chemotherapy treatment that will last indefinitely.
Thank you for considering honoring him in your race.
