As soon as the firefighters learned of Nico’s condition, they voted to purchase the “Americans For Nico” t-shirts, which have been appearing throughout the world.

Retinoblastoma, which develops quickly in the retina, affects an estimated 300 children a year nationwide. Although it has a high cure rate, loved ones are  concerned for Nico’s sight — and the eye itself.

Treatments are costly. And although many people have held benefits and contributed on their own, much more help is needed.

“I’m a true believer in the power of positive thinking and the energy you put out is what you will receive back,” said Nico’s father, Dominic Santoli. “The Universe will provide for whatever you ask. You just need to know what to ask for.”

If Santoli’s name is familiar, it’s because he was a standout athlete at Bergen Catholic High School, where he now coaches Crusaders linebackers and wrestlers and teaches gym.

He got word that his only son, Nico Michael Santoli, was sick while preparing his players for a game last September in Las Vegas. READ MORE….
