Meet Nick Waldvogel.
Nick is 10 years old from Amsterdam NY.
In August of 2018 he was diagnosed with a rare type of cancer. Nick was treated and hospitalized in-patient for six straight months to prepare him for a bone marrow transplant. His Mom, Dad and two younger brothers stayed at RMH off and on during this time. RMH volunteers and staff surprised Nick and celebrated his 10th birthday in the Ronald McDonald Family Room. Nick’s doctors told him he could go home for one night before going out to Rochester for his bone marrow transplant and he chose to do his overnight at Ronald McDonald House. He was in Rochester for four months and received a successful bone marrow transplant and now he healthy and cancer free. In December, he attended our RMHC Holiday party at the museum and he said, ”I’d forgotten what it was like to have fun!”
In early March, Nick stopped in to visit his friends at RMH and he shared with excitement he was starting school for the first time and was going to play on the basketball team. Nick is excited to be an honorary captain this year and looks forward to meeting his team and also thanking them for supporting RMHC!
