Welcome to Nestegg’s Light The Night Walk Team Fundraising Page!

As many of you know, I lost my 48 year old brother, Nick Nguyen, to colon cancer in October 2015.  He tried fighting the disease for 2 years but the cancer was too aggressive and he ultimately lost the battle. He left behind a wife and 2 young children. 

According to Cancer.org, there are 75 different types of cancers. Cancer is described as a disease in which abnormal cells divide and uncontrollably destroy the body tissue.  Most likely, everyone has known someone who has survived or died from cancer.  It is a horrible disease and we want to raise awareness to fund research to find a cure.

I first became intimately involved with leukemia, a form of blood cancer, when my mom’s neighbor, Jim Alder, was fighting leukemia while Nick was fighting colon cancer.  Although Nick passed, Jim survived and his story is amazing.  Click on the link to read about Jim’s story.  https://pages.lightthenight.org/ocie/OrangeCo17/jalder 

I later attended a fundraising that I was invited by Barbara Logue-Barish, one of the Directors of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. All of the speakers were inspiring, but one mother stood out. This mother had a son who was diagnosed with leukemia at 3 years old and lost his battle at 5 years. She was so strong when she told her story and I realized how grateful I was to have my 3 children alive, all healthy and happy.

Cancer does not discriminate based on your age, ethnicity or economic background.
