Who we are
Nico's Tree is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit foundation established in the memory of Nico Ventetuolo who passed away in 2016 from Severe Combined Immunodeficiency.
Our mission is to provide emotional and financial support for patients and families undergoing treatment for long term pediatric disease during both hospitalization and recovery phases. In support of this mission, we provide emergency relief funding to affected families to help them be able to focus on their child during treatment and recovery. We also strive to provide a wish granting service to children in treatment to help lift their spirits and put smiles on their faces.
