The Family & friends of Nick Apodaca are uniting to raise money for his medical costs & related expenses not covered by insurance

My wonderful husband Nick was diagnosed with an oligodendroglioma brain tumor on May 1st 2010 while living in London. After spending a week in the hospital we were told that he would need to monitor the tumor and get more tests done in a years time.

Arriving back in the US and moving to Arizona he completed more tests in April 2011. The doctors compared the MRIs and it has shown that the tumor is growing and brain surgery is a must. If we dont take the tumor out now he will start loosing movement and feeling on the left side of his body. The operation is set for July 6th, 2011 at Barrows Institute in Phoenix, Arizona.

Due to the health insurance that Nick has, the insurance will only cover 50% of the expenses after a $20,000 deductable. After speaking with the hospital they have told us that if the operation goes well, the surgery and the time spent in the hospital will cost us $30,000. Any donation that you can give will help us out so very much.

The fight that we have been fighting for over a year has emotionally and finacially hurt us. I know we can't change what Nick has, but we can continue to fight for him. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.

Our families and I thank you for your care and support.
God Bless you.
