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.

Richi Childhood Cancer Foundation

Mission:

We work to ensure that all children who suffer at the hands of cancer have the opportunity for a better prognosis and quality of life.  We are reaching our mission with our two main programs: The Richi House and The Richi Research.

With the Richi House we will help alleviate the strain that a life threatening illness puts on children with cancer and their family members by providing a relaxing, carefree, and enjoyable environment. It will be a place where children would rediscover their childhoods for a while, leaving behind nurses, doctors, treatments, suffering, and lives as patients.
With the Richi Research we support research focused on finding cures for childhood cancer and giving survivors long and healthy lives. We deal with leading pediatric hospitals and research centers, establishing the necessary partnerships that allow us to support them financially for finding cures.

Ryan’s Case for Smiles is one of the few volunteer organizations solely dedicated to helping sick children cope with the stress of their illnesses and injuries. We provide children with whimsical pillowcases to brighten their hospital rooms, as well as provide a diversion from long hospital days by sewing together.

Enhanced emotional well-being leads to faster and enhanced recovery. Our ultimate goal- To help kids feel better to heal better.
