Nolan was ten and in the fourth grade when he was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer. He needed weekly treatments at the hospital, making it almost impossible to attend school. Early on in his treatment, Grahamtastic Connection presented Nolan with an iPad and a robot, which he named Bob the Bot.
Today, Nolan is eleven, is in the fifth grade and continues to use Bob the Bot from his hospital room or home. His mother Angela states, “Thank you to Grahamtastic for keeping Nolan in touch with new teachers and classmates. This technology has allowed him to participate in class, keep up with school- work, and keep in contact with his friends, which are all so important.”
When Nolan is feeling well, he and his family give “Nolan’s Warrior Packs” to other pediatric cancer patients. These are backpacks filled with items to help make their hospital visit more comfortable. Included in the backpack is a letter from Nolan which states, “With a lot of positivity, we can make the best out of a not so great situation.” Hooray for Nolan!
