A year and a half after suffering horrible burns on 95% of his body, Niko DiNovo passed away yesterday. Niko was the Colonie teen that was involved with a terrible crash at Blessings Tavern in December of 2016.
Niko was certainly a fighter and showed an entire community what it meant to be #NikoStrong.
I was honored to be a part of an event at Colonie High School for Niko and although I didn't know him personally his story touched me deeply.
