December 2008 – Nicky in his Mecca! He was 12 years old in this picture at a GameStop at the Antelope Valley Mall.

When Nicky was 4 years old I bought an old SuperNintendo so I could teach him to play Mario Kart; I loved that game! I thought that this is something he could do to entertain himself.

Before long he got very good and to make sure he won I used to sit in 2nd place with a bunch of turtles and throw them at anyone that passed me so they could not beat him. 🙂 He would be soooo happy to win!

Of course 15 years later, now NIcky is the master of all games. I still play Mario Kart with him on occasion. Playing is pretty much all he can do to keep his mind off his pain.

More of Nicky’s story in the book… Thank you so much for your support!!
