COVID-19 UPDATE

Covid has impacted the lives of children in hospitals tremendously.  Sadly, Nicky's Nest has been closed down temporarily until we are COVID free and our cancer warriors are safe and sound.

We are so grateful to our very own Nicky's Nest dedicated Child Life Assistant, for bringing Nicky's Nest directly to their bedsides. 

Thank you Brandi for keeping us updated and informed.  We are so grateful to you for all you are doing for these children and for delivering smiles from Nicky's Nest directly to them personally!

On October 21st, 2021 - the Nicholas Pedone Foundation presented the hospital with a $50,000 donation to be used to fund the purchase, installation and configuration of 43 hospital grade LG Smart TV's in every patient room on Med4 & PACT - which is their Hemotology/Oncology floor for both in-patient, out-patient and bone marrow unit.   The TV's range with sizes, the majority being 43 inches and all will include 4K Edge LED technology!


Our little warriors on Med 4 are some of the sickest that come through their doors.  With this donation, we continue to deliver smiles to courageous kids fighting cancer with providing them access to Netflix, Disney, etc.

Nicky's Nest gets Dedicated Child Life Therapy Assistant!

Partnered with Northwell Cohen Children's Medical Center, in Lake Success, NY.  On January 20th, 2016, the Nicholas Pedone Foundation presented the hospital with a $250,000 grant to be used to newly reconstruct their Pediatric HEM-ONC Playroom.  The playroom officially opened the doors to "Nicky's Nest" on Valentines Day, February 14th, 2018!

In August 2019, the Nicholas Pedone Foundation gifted $94,000 to fund a dedicated Child Life Assistant to Nicky's Nest for 2 years!  We know first hand the importance of Child Life and how special these individuals are.  They are medical professionals who work with children and families and help them cope and understand the challenges of hospitalization, illness, procedures, testing etc.  They help children understand on a child level what to expect.  They love and play with the kids to ensure they are comfortable.  They help parents and families and provide a loving environment.  These children build a relationship and comfort with the Child Life Specialist and we are honored to be able to have 1 dedicated specifically to Nicky's Nest!
