Mission Statement

The Nicki Leach Foundation The Nicki Leach Foundation

Honoring Nicki's Request

The primary mission of the Nicki Leach Foundation, a non-profit organization, is to provide modest financial assistance to young adults (18-30) afflicted with cancer. The Foundation has decided to focus on this particular age group, as it includes the highest number of under insured individuals in the U.S., who are often caught between completion of education and actual employment with insurance. Most have already exhausted their financial resources, and have significant trouble finding jobs given their diagnoses and disabilities. We strongly urge you to support the Mission of the Nicki Leach Foundation."

Helping Others - Yesenia Ruiz-Rojo

Army wife, Yesenia Ruiz-Rojo went to the hospital almost 4 months pregnant after experiencing excruciating abdominal pain. Doctors ended up finding a gigantic tumor, covering more than 2/3 of her liver. Yesenia was diagnosed with aggressive liver cancer and was given 2-4 months to live. 

Yesenia begged her doctors to do something that would allow her to give her baby life but they told her there was nothing they could do; both she and the baby were not going to make it. Finally, experts from more than a dozen specialties decided to try a new treatment that would shrink the tumor for enough time to allow Yesenia to deliver her baby.The treatment took 6 weeks and Yesenia went on to have a perfectly healthy baby, Luke, at 32 weeks pregnant- Doctors call it a medical miracle. Yesenia got her first wish of giving her baby life and unfortunately, as her days as her days are numbered, she will not get to see this beautiful baby boy grow up.

She is creating an entire time capsule of advice for Luke to carry him through the most important stages of his life (first day of school, finding love, having children, and most importantly, according to Yesenia, going to college). It is Yesenia’s ultimate wish that her son graduates from college.
