From the families we work with…

“NNCCF has been there to provide tremendous emotional support as well as financial support to us.  They are there for hugs and laughter and support.  I know everything can be so overwhelming with a new routine thrown into your daily lives, but NNCCF is definitely a must.”

– Jake’s Family

"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

"After meeting the rest of the incredible staff, I immediately felt relieved knowing NNCCF was joining my support team. Since then, they have become family to us having made such a huge, positive impact on my life.”

– Johnny

"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."
