Noah’s Bandage Project

Mission:

Noah’s Bandage Project has 2 goals; collect cool, fun bandages for kids that need them, and raise money for pediatric cancer research. NBP was started by Noah Wilson shortly after he was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma. He was 6 years old at the time, and quickly found that the hospital he was getting treatment at did not have cool, fun bandages. He wanted to help his fellow patients, so he started collecting fun bandages. To date, he’s collected over 52k boxes of bandages, and raised over $200k for pediatric cancer research. Noah passed away in June of 2015 after developing a secondary cancer, AML Leukemia. His foundation is now run by his parents, Scott and Deb Wilson, in honor of their son.
