Nicholas, an 11-year-old boy, was born with various life-threatening illnesses. He suffers from Hydrocephalus, a cleft lip and palate, and Crouzan Syndrome. In his short life, he has already had seven surgeries to help correct the problems caused by his illnesses. Soon, he will have his most extensive surgery yet, which will hopefully correct the misalignment of his skull bones, which is caused by the Crouzan Syndrome.
Nicholas wished to meet the Chicago Cubs, and his wish recently came true. He is a huge sports fan and his favorite team is the Cubs. Nicholas and his family got to go out on the field while the team warmed-up before the game, take pictures with the players, spend some time in the dugout and watch the game. Some of the players signed a ball for Nicholas, and he was also given a jersey signed by Cubs player Aramis Ramirez. Nicholas’ mom said that he had such an awesome time on his wish!
