From the families we work with…

“Thank you so much for all that you have done for our family and other families like ours.  Your work is truly amazing and your love and kindness are evident in all that you do.  We so appreciate the financial and emotional assistance you have given during this difficult journey for our family.”

- Ezra's Family, Reno, NV

“The financial blessings, the kindness and attention we are given by every staff member at NNCCF have been so wonderful. We have felt genuine love and support and it has made our lives, especially Janessa's, much easier as she continues with her long term care. We don't honestly know what we would have done without NNCCF in our lives this past year and half.”​

- Janessa's Family, Reno, NV

“We just wanted to say thank you for all you have done for our family. The level of dedication, support and kindness from your organization is immeasurable. Up until a few months ago, we had never met; but we are stronger now because of you, for you have shown us that you are amazing, caring individuals who have helped us both financially and emotionally. You have shown us that we are indeed not alone in this journey.”

- Victor’s Family, Minden, NV

"Thank you so much for providing me with such an incredible scholarship. The funds will help me finish my undergraduate degree and continue on to medical school. I am incredibly grateful that you found my story to be deserving of such a great award."

- Morgan, Leukemia Survivor from Reno, NV

"You have chosen a good bunch to donate to; we are resilient and shall not back down from this challenge. Through your donations, we do not have to worry as much about our finances during the semester, allowing us to focus 100% on our schooling, which is perhaps the greatest gift that you can give to us during this time."

- Sebastein, Leukemia Survivor from Sparks, NV

"I can't stop singing your praises. No one should ever have to face life with a child with cancer, but should anyone find themselves writing a story similar to ours, I hope they are so blessed to have you in their cast of characters."

- Haylie's Family, Fernley, NV
Sweet Angel - November 3, 2006 to August 3, 2015

"It's unbelievable what this group does, not only for those fighting cancer, but their families as well. Even though my son is fighting cancer I do everything I can to help this organization because of how important the work they do is to those that truly need it!!"

-Logan's Family, Sparks, NV

"There are no words to express our gratitude. We are overwhelmed with emotions and just want to say thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of you there. Your help makes it possible for us to breathe a little easier. We will be forever grateful and we can't wait until we are able to give back in some way."

- Kyla's Family, Incline Village, NV

"I just wanted to let you know how much Sabrina, and we as her family, appreciate the computer for Sabrina's school work. Her class has been focusing on improving their computer skills and she has been using it every night!  She has much more independence and has been super responsible logging her own school work and taking pride in the fact that it is her device that she is responsible for. Thank you is not enough, we really appreciate all of the support and especially surprises like this that help foster Sabrina's education. She was moved to tears when I told her that NNCCF would be able to provide a computer for her...that alone was such a blessing to behold."

- Sabrina's Family, Sparks, NV

"Kyra spent three days in 1st grade before we were told that she was immunocompromised and needed to be homeschooled. Kyra loves school and was heartbroken. Kyra stays connected with school by doing work on her laptop and getting books from school that teachers give her to read. She loves being interactive with the computer. It makes her feel smart and that makes her heart happy! Thank you so much to Northern Nevada Children's Cancer Foundation for all that you do for us and for the amazing E-kids program!"

- Kyra's Family, Reno, NV

“Thank you so much to NNCCF for providing Morgan with a laptop! It really has helped him stay connected to his online schooling while he is in Oakland receiving treatment, and at home as well. We are so grateful to this wonderful foundation that has helped our family in numerous ways during such a difficult time.”

- Morgan's Family, Sparks, NV
