Nick Price is a survivor of a exophytic pontine glioma brain tumor, now recovered, he is on a mission to help others that have been diagnosed with brain tumors via his non profit organization- the Nick Price Foundation.
Nick, a student at Academic Magnet High School, was diagnosed with an exophytic pontine glioma brain tumor on January 29, 2015. His tumor was growing from the brain stem into the 4th ventricle of the brain. This is a very complex hard to reach tumor in the pons area of the brain stem. The family traveled the country meeting with several different facilities and neurosurgeons to find someone who could get to the tumor without causing severe neurological deficits or worse. This part of the brain controls several vital functions of the body including voice, eyes, arms, legs, swallowing and breathing. The family chose Drs. Sanai and Spetzler in Phoenix Arizona. These two very talented neurosurgeons specialize in brain stem tumors and partnered up to perform Nick's surgery. Nick had 2 surgeries - 2 days apart in mid June to remove the tumor that is now 100% gone.
