Nick Magnotti was a 27 year old new father who had been battling cancer on and off for over 2 years. He made this video because he wanted to share the peace that he felt even while facing death and to tell his 7 month old daughter how much he loved her. Nick passed away just three months after filming. He is now whole, he is at peace, and he is smiling his beautiful smile. He left behind his loving wife of five years and their sweet daughter.
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.
