Teacher Can’t Afford To Buy Gifts For His Sick Son — So His Students Step In
Nathan Neidigk is an AP Calculus and Pre-Cal Teacher at Volcano Vista High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He's also a father of his three-year-old boy, Mikey who was recently diagnosed with leukemia. Sadly, the toddler's mom passed away when he was born. It's been a rough couple of years, but the teacher continues to come to class with a bright attitude. His positive attitude attracted positivity from his students.
Recently, Nathan admitted to his students that he wasn't going to be able to buy many presents this year due to the astronomical cost of treating Mikey's illness. That's when his 12th-grade students decided to do something extraordinary.
In a video shot by student Kayla Yaksich, the seniors presented Nathan with an oversized wrapped present.
Watch the touching video below, and be sure to share this story to let others know that it's okay to ask for, and accept, help when you need it.
A friend of Nathan's also set up a GoFundMe campaign to pay for the three and a half years of chemotherapy and other medical expenses that Mikey will need during his fight against the deadly disease.
