The family & friends of Nicholas Jaymes Ybarra are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against AT/RT Brain Cancer.

In September of 2010, Nicholas Jaymes Ybarra, was a typical 18 month old child. Youngest of four children, with a baby brother on the way, his family was almost complete.

All of that would change when Nicholas received the devastating diagnosis of Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor (AT/RT) Brain Cancer. The prognosis was not good.

He and his mom spent day and night at the hospital, discussing treatment plans with his doctors. Within a few weeks of diagnosis his baby brother was born. Soon after, Nicholas was having surgery, and started chemotherapy and later radiation. He has had his ups and downs, and has recently passed the one year milestone on his journey.

Due to the aggressive nature of his tumors, the doctors have exhausted all options in his treatment plan. They have concluded that he will never go into remission, and will likely lose his battle soon after his treatments have ended.

Nicholas' family has been there for him every step of the way. His mom has not been able to work due to the frequency of appointments and treatments needed to fight this disease. This battle has drained their family both mentally and financially. Nicholas is fighting for his life right now and the mounting medical bills and final expenses are a worry we would like to take away.

Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.
