Nick Cammarata

Nick Cammarata was a 13-year-old teen who was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on the Fourth of July, 2008. For four months, Nick struggled to get into remission so he could have a bone marrow transplant, which was his best chance for survival. He went into remission on October 18, 2008. On October 26, 2008, Nick lost his valiant fight with cancer, but his spirit and love guides us daily.

The mission of Nick’s Fight to be Healed Foundation is to support pediatric cancer patients as well as serve the young adult cancer community.

Nick Cammarata Memorial Scholarship:

There will be two $1,000 scholarships awarded to two 2014 graduating seniors who attend Shenendehowa Central School. This scholarship is being sponsored by Nick’s Fight to be Healed Foundation in memory of Nick Cammarata and reflects his interests, values and personality. The recipients must be interested in furthering their education in a two or four-year institution and plan to use technology in a creative way that improves their performance both inside and outside the classroom. This is not exclusive to those going into technological fields, but also to those who will apply their interest in today's technologies as they progress forward in their academic and social lives. Applications are available in HSE Counseling Center and they must be submitted by March 31, 2014.
