Hello and condolences, I really can't imagine how hard it is to lose someone so unexpectedly and quickly. I remember I was in Mrs. Frei tag's writing class when she just found out her son would be attending Princeton. She was beaming with pride as any mother would be. I don't remember much about Nick specifically other than he struck me as a man who squeezed every bit of opportunity out of life that he could. If there was any bit of solace I could try to offer it would be that although his life was tragically short, it was not one that was lacking in fulfillment.

The Nick Freitag Memorial Foundation
Long Beach, IN United States
CROWDRISING SINCE: Jul 08, 2013
Stuff About Me:

Nick Freitag didn't believe in giving up. Inspired by his bravery and determination, the Nick Freitag Memorial Foundation will continue to fight melanoma. The mission of our foundation is two-fold. First, we will fund research to find a cure for metastatic melanoma; a disease that destroyed the life of a beloved son and brother in just over a year. Second, we will honor Nick's determination and spirit by continuing the fight in his name.

Nick was born in Michigan City, Indiana on April 7, 1979 and was a graduate of Michigan City High School, Princeton University and Georgetown Law School. He exemplified an honorable and selfless person who demonstrated pride, loyalty, mental and physical toughness, and determination. Those who were privileged to know Nick had a beautiful friend who truly believed, “Be happy every day.”

He was a practicing attorney when diagnosed with stage 4 cancer in the summer of 2012. No visible signs were evident as Nick ran, swam, boxed and skied. On July 2, 2013, Nick lost his battle against melanoma, but kept hope alive even in his last days.

Our fight to find a cure continues in his honor. Please help us continue Nick's fight!
