Nathan is a young raw talent! He has great speed for his height and size.  He is a very athletic young man, he can play both infield and outfield. I think later in his career he will develop into an amazing first baseman and/or a corner outfielder. His bat is above average. He understands the strike zone better than most at his age. He has tremendous potential and will only get better as a future star!

Nathan has partnered with Alex Abadi  and Giving Hope through Faith Foundation for Home Runs that Help

“How do you define a hero?  By strengths? Wisdom? Or Achievements?  We have learned a hero can live among you and appear when you least expect it.”

Meet Alex Abadi. He’s 5 years old and your typical kindergartener – he’s shy around someone he doesn’t know, likes to eat Chipotle and wants to play baseball next spring.  What sets Alex apart from the other kindergartners?  In April this year, he was diagnosed with Wilms’ tumor – a rare kidney cancer that primarily affects children.  The doctor’s also discovered a node on his left lung which categorized his cancer as stage IV.  Alex underwent surgery to remove the large tumor along with his right kidney, radiation therapy to kill the cancer cells that were floating around in his abdominal cavity due to the ruptured tumor, and began a 25 week chemotherapy regimen.  His CT scan showed the tumors on his lungs had gotten smaller, but did not disappear completely.  His regimen of chemo was strengthened as well as treatments of full lung radiation. 

Nathan and Alex met through the Giving Hope Through Faith foundation cofounded by Sherry and Dirk Tucker and friends.  Sherry knows what Alex and his family are going through – she lost her son Zach to a cancerous brain tumor in 2006 – he was only 8 years old.  He battled cancer for 10 months with unrelenting courage and optimism.  Never asking why…just facing each new challenge with determination and hope. 

As the Tucker family faced their first Christmas after Zach’s death, they felt a need to use Zach’s stocking as a source of joy instead of sorrow.  They decided to have a gift card drive to fill Zach’s stocking with cards that could be distributed to other families still battling cancer.  The Tucker’s were overwhelmed with the response.  They received cards from family, friends and people they did not know.  They felt the project could grow into something more.  That is when Giving Hope Through Faith was born.  Knowing how financially and emotionally draining a cancer diagnosis can be on the entire family, and remembering how uplifting the prayers and encouragements they received were, they – along with some close friends – decided to start a program to help others facing cancer.  Giving Hope Through Faith Foundation is dedicated to their brave hero Zach to accomplish this mission.  “To give to those in need helps heal a broken heart.”  God’s purpose for Zachary was great and it should be shared with many.  THE ZACH IMPACT IS POWERFUL!
