In The Community

NICK: North West Indiana Cancer Kids Foundation


Northwest Indiana Cancer Kids (N.I.C.K.) is a 501c3 charity that was founded by a pediatric cancer family who live right here in the area. Our families are all local and available to talk with you. We know what you are going through, because we've been there, too. When our children were in treatment, we found that nothing was as comforting or as hopeful as talking to other people who knew our challenges. We believe the same should be available to ALL families facing pediatric cancer. Knowing a child with cancer brings a lot of uncertainty. We are here to provide hope and support for anyone affected by pediatric cancer in Northwest Indiana and the surrounding areas.”
