A Note From Nick

What a year it has been! It started with the words no one wants to hear and was followed by denials from multiple medical institutions, invasive cancer treatments, fighting to be listed for liver transplant and grasping on to hope along the way. Next came a life saving liver transplant, major complications that put me in the ICU for weeks, recovering in New York City during the Covid-19 pandemic and 3 months away from my kids. Today marks 1 month of being back home with my family and reflecting on an incredible journey I will never forget.

It’s hard to put into words what the amazing support we have received from you means to me & my family. The only thing I can say is THANK YOU from the depths of my soul. Your words, thoughts & actions carried me through the highest of highs & lowest of lows. You were the prayer warriors & army of hope that have been there and I will always have a special place in my heart for you.

So many things can define who we are as individuals but what I’ve learned from this incredible journey is that what defines us is how we live, why we live & the manner in which we live. I am so very grateful for the second chance at life I have been given and will do my best to pay your words, thoughts & actions forward.

May God Bless You All,
Nick Oprish
