When Nicholas complained about severe stomach pain while eating and his parents saw he wasn’t growing as he should, they decided to take him to a pediatrician. His doctor noticed that Nicholas had not grown in height for a full year and ordered diagnostic tests. Through the tests, it was discovered that Nicholas had Crohn’s Disease, an inflammation of the lining of the intestines that can lead to severe pain, fatigue, weight loss, and malnutrition. In order to provide his body with the nutrients he needs to grow, Nicholas has to drink supplement shakes and take medication that keeps his diet high in fat.
Nicholas is a sweet natured, outgoing and very likeable boy. Nicholas is not the kind of boy who likes to sit inside and play videogames all day; instead, he would rather be outside in the sunshine playing. Nicholas is a member of the Cub Scouts and loves school and his church where he is a member of the youth choir. Nicholas loves following basketball and is a huge fan of the NBA.
