A Hope for Nikolas

Nikolas Hourican has been living with chronic kidney disease coupled with impending vision loss for all of his almost 13 years. This dynamic young man doesn’t let it slow him
down as he attends Beverly Middle School - achieving Honor Roll status. He also enjoys guitar lessons and even goes to karate once a week. But as he grows and his kidneys do not and time is approaching for transplant. Nikolas received the best Christmas gift EVER when a donor was approved!!

Now Nikolas waits for just the right time for transplant, likely within the year. While most expenses are covered, copays for his medications can reach $1000 a month out of pocket, not to mention the many little expenses that mount up each month.  Nikolas has learned so much about giving back after being granted a Grand Canyon trip by Make-A-Wish. He attends fundraising events for them to show his gratitude and pay it forward.  We hope that now you may consider a donation to help Nikolas on his journey to transplant. We are grateful to all for your ongoing love and support.  Any funds remaining after things are settled Nikolas is planning to donate to Children's Hospital
