About Us

Northwest Indiana Cancer Kids (N.I.C.K.) is a 501c3 charity that was founded by a childhood cancer family who live right here in the area. Our organization was started based on our personal journey with childhood cancer. To learn more, Read Drew’s Story.

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 childhood cancer.

Please take time to explore this site, and get in touch with us. No matter where you are in your journey with childhood cancer, we’d love to talk with you and provide whatever support we can.

We are also a volunteer-run organization. If you’re a friend, family member, or anyone else who wants to make a difference, please consider giving your time to host or help with one of our events.

Remember – there is hope for ALL children with childhood cancer.
