Our Mission

The mission of the Nick Wilson Charitable Group (NWCG) is to provide compassionate and immediate financial support to children, teens and their families undergoing cancer treatment and bone marrow transplantation at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon. NWCG seeks to improve the quality of life of these families by providing significant financial support for the many costs not covered by medical insurance that they may encounter during their child’s medical treatment. Through this support, we hope to reduce financial stress and allow families to focus their energies where it is needed most, on the medical and social needs of their family members.
