Meet CCA Hero, Nick

Nick Loring is a sweet, fun-loving kid who loves cheering on the Blazers, dancing, practicing martial arts and being a big brother to his siblings Makenzie, Haiden, and Liam.

Since his acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) diagnosis in 2013, Nick has endured multiple rounds of chemotherapy, more than ten hospitalizations and intense physical therapy to help him walk again. But throughout it all, he’s maintained an upbeat, can-do attitude. “He is so strong willed,” says his mom. “Most people would think cancer is the end of the world, but he always manages to look on the bright side.”

Nick says he’s grateful for all the things CCA has done for him and has always been eager to give back any way he can. That includes selling raffle tickets at CCA’s Hero Gala, appearing in the Junior Rose Parade and busting a few of his awesome dance moves in our signature “Happy” video.
