Who is Nathan?
Nathan was a beautiful little boy who loved Elmo, playing in the pool and being with his
mommy and daddy. Born on Tuesday, March 24, 2009. Weighing 7 pounds 6 ounces
and 19 ½ inches long, Nathan was perfect. In the beginning, like many parents they
were back and forth to the pediatrician’s office for what was thought to be reflux. On
May 5, 2009, their lives would forever change when Nathan was diagnosed with stage 4
Neuroblastoma at 6 weeks old.

Instead of watching their son reach his milestones our days were overcome with
chemotherapy and surgery. After 6 rounds of chemotherapy in November of 2009,
Nathan had reached NED, no evidence of disease. We would then begin traveling to
Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC for a clinical trial used for preventative treatment. In
January 2010 the cancer had spread and Nathan would require more surgery,
chemotherapy, and radiation to continue to fight this disease. The next several months
consisted of multiple hospitalizations at Hasbro Children’s Hospital and Memorial Sloan
Kettering. When Nathan wasn’t admitted he was going to treatments at the Tomorrow
Fund Clinic at Hasbro.

Normalcy for the family was being in the hospital. As a result of the constant support
from family, friends and the community they were always able to be by their precious
baby’s bedside. He was never alone. Words will never truly express what that meant to
them.  In that time they were able to enjoy those little moments and be amazed by
Nathan’s resilience and strength even when his body was so weak.
Nathan Joseph Soares earned his angel wings on September 17, 2010.


How we help?


In 2012 The Nathans Angels Memorial Foundation was established with our first annual Wine and Beer Tasting.  We will never forget his beautiful smile and the love Nathan was able to share.   Our mission is to help other local families whose child has been stricken with a critical cancer diagnosis to help offset some of the financial burden that goes along with this horrible disease.  With the generous support we receive, we can help families be by their child’s side...forever keeping Nathans memory alive.
