Posted: January 5, 2017Nick Currey was only 4 years old when he was diagnosed with leukemia. After going through treatment and becoming cancer-free, he was later diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma at the age of 18. He passed away a year later.
Nick is just one of the 83% of children’s cancer survivors who do not go on to lead long, healthy lives. Just like many other survivors, he suffered from the toxic effects of treatment, enduring cognitive and organ damage, as well as hearing loss.
He is one of the reasons why CureSearch is on a mission to accelerate children’s cancer research and find better, less toxic treatments. Watch the video to learn more:
