When Holmes resident Nicholas Colleluori finally lost his courageous 14-month battle with cancer in November 2006, his family resolved to carry out Nick’s dreams of helping other cancer patients navigate the harrowing ordeal. In so doing, Nick’s untimely passing at age 21 evolved from a tragic ending to the beginning of a beautiful story.

From 6:30-8:30 PM on Tuesday, Sept. 27, the Colleluoris will host the grand opening of Nick’s House at 232 Green Ave. in Holmes. The site will serve as the permanent headquarters for the HEADstrong Foundation and provide temporary housing for the families of blood cancer patients receiving treatment in local hospitals.
