The Nikolas Ritschel Foundation strives to bring joy to young adults (18 – 24) and their loved ones fighting cancer. They provide “Nik’s Wishes” to patients to carve out a joyful time to laugh, love and be together – and to forget about cancer for a while. While many pediatric cancer programs age out at 18, Nik’s Wishes focus on college-aged (18-24) young adults fighting cancer.
