Nick’s Wish is the charitable vision of Nick Boyd, who as a young adult was diagnosed with a rare tumour of the central nervous system called a medulloblastoma or PNET (primitive neuroectodermal tumour), a condition which usually affects children.
Nick had a vision that after he beat his own cancer he would have a fundraiser with all of his friends and family to raise funds for the parents of children with cancer.
In 2010, his parents Stephen and Lois brought his vision to fruition. To date, Nick’s Wish has raised more than $200,000. The funds raised go towards supporting children and their families receiving care at the RCH.
