Welcome to the Fundraising Page for Nicholas Ferrante!

“Every day is a new adventure.” A phrase that’s been ingrained into my own vernacular from a very young age. Any time my fathers phone rang I always heard a deep “Hello” followed by a brief pause and this all too often heard phrase to follow. This phrase took about 20 years for me to fully comprehend what he actually meant by this. It was when I started working professionally where I was met by the all too familiar “how are you” small talk on the phone and instinctively I answered with the all too familiar phrase “every day is a new adventure.” It was then I finally understood my father’s “go-to” answer.

Life throws us curveballs – sometimes at the most opportune times and many times at the most inconvenient. In response, we should stay grounded, humble and look to life as waves in the ocean. We can ride those low tide ripples and bask in the sun but sometimes you have to tread water, embrace the waves and let them crash over you. It’s all about keeping your head above water, embracing the present and take each day as they come.

My father embraced each and every single day of his life and rode whatever waves came his way. As he made his morning cup of coffee, you can see the gears turning in his head about what he wanted to accomplish that given day. Whether it was paperwork or a home maintenance project, he acted selflessly to provide a better life for my mother, my brother and myself.

Sadly, we lost my beloved father, Rocco, on May 20, 2021 after his incredible fight with small cell lung cancer and pulmonary fibrosis. My father epitomized a role model – he was the strongest and most amazing husband, father, father-in-law, and friend to many. We are incredibly blessed to have had him in our lives.

Rocco was one in a million. He was humble, kind and always put his family first. He was a man of many talents and hobbies. From working on cars, to building models, to home projects – quite honestly, there were very few times he didn’t have a pair of tools in his hands working on a project.

Much like how my father practiced what he preached, my wife Caitlyn and I have aimed to follow this “every day is a new adventure” as our own mantra, as we now navigate life in his absence.

As the result, we have made the decision to train and participate in the 2021 New York City Marathon with Team Continuum and run in memoriam of my father Rocco. Team Continuum aims to help pediatric cancer patients and their families cope with the expenses and stresses of everyday life so they can focus on receiving crucial medical care. With respect to my father’s own battle, this cause is very near and dear to our hearts.

Your support of our fundraising effort is vital to Team Continuum’s success and we deeply appreciate your generosity and encouragement as we take on this feat in memory of our father.
