Timothy J. Nickel: 8/9/1967 - 10/4/2010


Hello Heidi,

Thank you to the Jack and Jill Foundation…..WOW – what an experience. My husband has stage 4 cancer and our family of 5 were sponsored for a trip. We choose New York – and let me tell you – because of the Jack and Jill Foundation we have wonderful memories.

We arrived Thursday night and met at the airport and then driven to our hotel. The hotel was absolutely beautiful. Plenty of room for the 5 of us. On Friday we went on a city tour – which we thoroughly enjoyed. On Saturday we were able to see The Lion King with a backstage tour. That evening we went on a light harbor cruise.

We were able to enjoy being with each other in a wonderful city. The memories will be with each of us forever. The kids especially will always have wonderful loving memories of spending time in New York with their dad. They will never forget this trip. We have truly been blessed. Thank you for making this dream a reality. Due to our current situation we could have never been able to do this on our own. Also, to get the kids away from the everyday stress of cancer. It is always in their face – this was a wonderful break that they needed.

Thank you for all your hard work…thank you to all that make this possible!!! This organization is truly a wonderful organization.

Thank you,

The Nickel Family
