The Nikolas Ritschel Foundation enriches the lives of young cancer patients between 18-24 years old. In most cases, we fulfill their wish of a dream vacation that they can enjoy with their family!
The Story of Nikolas Ritschel:
Nikolas Ritschel was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, Synovial Sarcoma, about a month before his 18th birthday and joined heaven a month after his 21st birthday.
Nik realized that many cancer patients in his age group were too old to take advantage of “kids” programs and yet too young to have their own resources.
