Team Nicholas brings comfort and joy to children and families facing long-term medical care and hospital stays. The key to our organization is that the founders, Joanna and Bart Veghts, understand how difficult it is to have a critically sick child. They lost their son Nicholas, almost 9, to leukemia in February of 2012. The Veghts family vowed to honor Nicholas' memory by providing these families gifts that bring bright moment’s and smiles at the most difficult times.
Team Nicholas is a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization that helps children and their families that are facing critical health problems. We have helped over 1000 families at Comer Children's Hospital, Edward Hospital in Naperville and at the Ronald McDonald Houses throughout Chicago area with plans to expand to other areas of the country.
