Hello and a HUGE "Thank you" to everyone in showing us your continuous emotional support as well as supporting us in the cause of raising money for Fight Colorectal Cancer, nationally headquarted near Washington DC. This is an organization near and dear to our hearts, and was chosen by Deb (Nick's Mom) after researching different options. Deb learned that their expertise on colorectal cancer, and their genuine compassion to help educate and raise awareness, and most importantly, FIND A CURE, was exactly what she was in search of!

As most of you know, Nick was diagnosed with colon cancer in May of 2012. Sadly, he lost his short, hard fought courageous battle. Nick passed peacefully, surrounded by many of his friends and family, on the evening of September 13, 2012, at the young age of 30.

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams"
~Eleanor Roosevelt

Nicks dream was always to become a professional bowler. As sad as we are that Nick has passed on, the blessing is that his dream has now been fulfilled, and he is on God's team bowling with all the legends! Simply put, God needed another bowler to complete his team in Heaven! So, everytime you hear that THUNDER in the sky, SMILE, and remember Nick, as he is probably bowling ANOTHER 300 game :) !!!

Colorectal cancer is the second leading killer of cancer in the United States, and demands a cure! Lets be a part of helping them seek this cure! All of your donations on this site will go directly to The Fight Colorectal Cancer organization. We lost a person who was full of life, lived it to the fullest, and who was loved by all who had the pleasure of meeting him. Nick was a son, brother, grandson, cousin and a fantastic friend. Let's stop this battle from consuming others! Every contribution helps! Together we can make make a difference and kick colon cancer in the rear...pun intended!


For those of you that would like to attend, we are having a Bowling celebration in memory of Nick. This will take place on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at Cedarvale Lanes from 2pm-5pm. 3883 Cedar Grove Parkway, Eagan, MN.
