Our Mission

To provide compassionate financial support to children, teens and their families undergoing cancer treatment and blood and marrow transplantation at Doernbecher Children's Hospital in Portland, Oregon.

Donate Today

The Nick Wilson Charitable Group was founded in 2005 by Nick Wilson’s family, whose hope was to help other families like their own, traveling the unknown and tumultuous path through childhood cancer treatment and bone marrow transplantation.  Having faced their worst nightmare in 2001 when Nick passed away at the tender age of three, the Metz/Wilson Family focused their energies on what would help families like them, specifically what wasn’t already being addressed in the community.

Despite adequate health insurance, trying to make ends meet with the plethora of other expenses that arose while Nick was undergoing treatment seemed a cruel reality of this dreadful experience. 

As a result, NWCG’s mission was born—to provide compassionate financial support to families with children undergoing cancer treatment and blood and marrow transplantation at the hospital where Nick received his treatment – Doernbecher Children’s Hospital here in Portland.

Sometimes families find themselves with so few resources that they need financial help that very day to buy a tank or gas or bag of groceries to feed the family.  Gift cards for gas and groceries are available to any family who needs them through one of the social workers on staff in the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology unit at Doernbecher.  And if they need it, they will get that help today.
