Nick Magnotti is a 27 year old new father who has been battling cancer for over 2 years. The cancer originated in his Appendix and has spread throughout his abdominal cavity, despite many efforts to curb the cancer's aggressive nature. Through all the treatments, multiple surgeries, intense heated intra-peritoneal chemotherapy treatments, seventeen rounds of systemic chemo and countless hours of excruciating pain - he continues to smile.
Though doctors can no longer help him, the word he uses to describe how he feels now, is, blessed. Knowing that his time on Earth was coming to an end, Nick decided to leave this powerful video message for his baby daughter. It will move you to tears.

Heartbreakingly, soon after making this video, Nick passed away.
His wife Alyssa wrote this on her blog: "Nick passed peacefully Tuesday morning, in my arms, after a 2.5 year battle with Appendix Cancer at the age of 27. The last 48 hours without him have been a blur and an intense roller coaster of extreme ups and terrible, terrible downs. I am elated that he is with Jesus and finally cancer free but I am also heartbroken for me."
