Thank You to Nicolas Diaz Foundation for Generous Donation!

Nicolas Diaz Foundation

Patients at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital will have more exciting hospital stays, thanks to a
generous donation from the Nicolas Diaz Foundation! Johanna and Carlos Diaz created the 
Nicolas Diaz Foundation in honor of their little boy, Nick, who passed away three years ago.
Their mission is to raise awareness for the need of blood donations and to help patients have
a less painful and difficult time during their treatment. Johanna and Carlos came to Nicklaus
Children’s Hospital with 40 Nintendo Wii consoles to fulfill a promise they made to Nick.  Nick
loved to play video games and smiled all the time, always lighting up the room. In his honor, the 
40 Nintendo Wii consoles were donated to the Hematology/Oncology Unit, so more kids who
are touched by cancer can smile as Nick used to. Nick’s avatar was programmed on each
of the consoles, so that every child can “play” with him. Our patients and families enjoy using the 
Wiis and virtually playing with other patients without having to leave the comfort of their room.
We are so thankful to the Diaz family for their unwavering support and generosity despite
their loss. They are truly an inspiration as they continue to serve our community!
