Northwest Indiana Cancer Kids

Northwest Indiana Cancer Kids, the NICK Foundation, is an organization founded in 2009, by a local family that experienced the effects of childhood cancer. During this trying period of their lives they discovered that there was a great need for support and resources for families enduring childhood cancer in Northwest Indiana. The Foundation provides support to families through partnership and attentive care. We bring families together that have had similar experiences with childhood cancer to foster courage, faith and HOPE. Our organization strives to supply assistance in areas of need: Financial Assistance, Resources, Items of need, Post transplant home preparation, The Jonathon Millstead Memorial Scholarship Fund, Ongoing family support. We believe the ultimate mission of any cancer foundation should be finding cures. Our charity hosts fundraisers and events to raise awareness and contribute to organizations that fund promising research in pediatric cancer fields.
