Nathan had a hard life. He was a 21-year cancer survivor. At 14 he was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a diagnosis given to him on Sept. 11, 2001. The treatment of this Cancer required the removal of a complete bone in his right leg, several pieces of bone throughout his body and several lung biopsies, along with a year of chemo and radiation. But he always fought hard and had a good attitude.
Complications of the cancer and chemo were always there and caused lung problems and sore, weak muscles all over his body. Despite this, he still played Baseball, Basketball and spent as much time as he could outdoors with his boys. They enjoyed time hiking and fishing or just sitting quietly watching nature and the skies. One of Nathan's dreams was to be an astronaut.
He enjoyed sharing his hobbies of working on and playing with anything with a motor and wheels: RC Cars, Fast cars, scooters and bikes.
