What is a Nik’s Wish?
Nik believed in the power of a wish to bring hope, happiness during the cancer battle. The goal of the Nik's Wish Grant Program is to recognize the courage and determination of these inspirational cancer warriors by offering wish trips or other life enrichment to them and their families in the hopes of alleviating some of the many emotional and psychological challenges that come with a cancer diagnosis. Our hope is that the grant provides precious moments of joy-filled with laughter and smiles.
