Young adults, ages 18-24, have very specific concerns when they are diagnosed with cancer. This is a time in their lives when they want to meet others and form close relationships. It's a time when they want to focus on school, careers, and starting families. Instead their time is spent in treatment at children's hospitals, where they most certainly feel it's a step backwards. Cancer robs them of the cherished independence their peers enjoy.
Some wishes celebrate the completion of treatment. Some are for taking a needed break from treatment to rejuvenate for the continued fight. And, some are a last wish to spend the remaining precious time with loved ones. Typically, a Nik's Wish grant will cost $6000. Our amazing Wish Coordinators work directly with the young adults and their families to create awesome experiences filled with joy, love, and FUN! The memories created are priceless for the entire family. Read the testimonials from some of the families.
