Hear from our families

  • Mothers are always seen as the backbone of the family. But we also need a helping hand every now and then. So, it is important we take advantage of the resources available to us and believe it is going to get better.

  • The relationship that our children formed with their angel was so important to them, that he didn’t want it to ever end. The free childcare this organization provides for families impacted by cancer is transformational and vital.

    Kyle, dad

  • Nankind opened my mind and empowered me to open up about my issues. They also helped me realize that my daughter has to face the world and she needs the right tools to do so.
