As many of you know, the Castros’ initiated San Antonio’s camp in 2013 to honor and remember their beloved son, Nicolas “Nico” Ramírez Castro. Nico—a talented, witty, caring and athletic boy—dreamed of becoming a professional and international soccer player. But, Nico’s dream was cut short. At the age of 9 he was diagnosed with childhood hepatocellular carcinoma, a malignant cancerous tumor. After a 16-month courageous journey to find a cure, the Castros’ lost Nico on November 18, 2012, at the age of 11.
Each year in the U.S., an estimated 15,780 children are diagnosed with cancer. This heartbreaking disease continues to scar families and communities. This is why families like the Castros’ dedicate themselves to combating this terrible illness—to remember Nico’s love of life, his compassion for others, and his passion for soccer; and to stand with families facing childhood cancer today.
STAND WITH HEM IN THIS FIGHT! The Castro’s goal is to have 150 children and youth participate in the camp and to raise $10,000 for pediatric cancer research efforts in San Antonio! But they need your support.

The Castro’s ask for your assistance promoting the camp through your networks, soccer clubs, and school communities. The goal is to have 150 children and youth participate, and to raise $10,000 for pediatric cancer support and research in San Antonio.
Financial contributions to sponsor children that don’t have the means to participate in the camp are welcome. For the past 3 years, about 40 percent of participating youth have been sponsored by generous donors.
All proceeds are tax deductible and support pediatric cancer research. To learn more about the camp and make a donation visit: https://www.nicosdream.org/the-camp
