Our Children Are Fighters. Fight With Us.

When you support Nicklaus Children’s, you not only help a child, but you give that child what he or she needs to reach the important milestones in life. Without your support, a child may not be able to take his or her first step, ride a two-wheeler, or graduate from college. Nicklaus Children’s is here to give children the best chance to heal, and we need your support so together we can give them the best chance at a healthy life. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

"I give because giving is better than receiving. I joined the Nicklaus Children’s Young Ambassadors to raise funds and awareness for children and families in need at Nicklaus Children’s following my son’s congenital heart disease diagnosis. You don’t leave the experience my wife and I went through without being changed. I knew I had to get more involved."
