About Nico's Promise

When a child dies or faces a life-altering illness, the family becomes the patient. Nico's Promise: A Journey of Hope and Healing is a dedicated bereavement program at Nicklaus Children's Hospital that focuses on continuity of care from a family-centered perspective. We help fortify these families, leading them to discover their inner strength and honor their children by living once again productive, meaningful and even joy-filled lives.

Over the past seven years, Nico’s Promise has served 1,400 families who have suffered the loss of a child, from providing countless group sessions to coordinating annual celebrations of life.

Fashion Show Event

The Nico's Promise Fashion Show is an annual event to support the hospital's bereavement program. In 2019, Nico's Promise raised nearly $250,000.

Our Goal

Philanthropic support is critical to the future of this essential program. This is why we aim to endow the program to provide support to our families in perpetuity. Jorge and Alina Hernandez, and their daughter Carolina Hernandez-Exposito, co-founders of Nico's Promise in conjunction with Nicklaus Children's Hospital Foundation, invite you to join them in making the endowment a reality by giving generously and by supporting the annual Nico's Promise Fashion Show and other fundraising activities.

The loss of a child affects the entire family. With your support, Nico's Promise extends a helping hand when they need it most with:

  • Individual counseling sessions
  • One-on-one sessions with family members
  • Support groups and meaningful activities
  • Family counseling sessions
  • Access and referrals to community resources
