About Nick Wilson
Nick Wilson was a spirited and compassionate little boy who was diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia at age 18 months in May of 1999. He endured hundreds of days in the hospital undergoing high dose chemotherapy, irradiation, stem cell transplantation, and multiple medical procedures. In spite of these unfavorable circumstances, Nick seized every opportunity to play, laugh, and provide a steadfast example of a tenacious zest for life. Nick died in April of 2001 despite modern medicine’s best efforts to cure his disease. It is in memory of Nick’s incredible spirit that his family endeavors to keep his spirit and compassion alive by helping other children and families finding themselves in similar circumstances.
