It’s impossible to put into words the impact he had on thousands and thousands of families and the amazing joy that he spread. Nick was involved with Make-A-Wish Mid-South for more than 20 years and in his time, helped raise more than $3.5 million for wishes. Year after year, he went above and beyond what anyone would’ve expected to ensure that our wishes were top-notch, our events were well supported and that no child with a critical illness was turned down for a wish.
We are inspired in reflecting on the strength in which he fought his illness. His battle with cancer gave him new eyes to see the challenges of wish kids and the true impact a wish can have in the life of a child. He was so incredibly joyous, compassionate and loving- always storytelling and carving out new support for our organization that he held so dear to his heart.
In his honor, we’re launching the Nick Vergos Wish Memorial Fund
. We believe Nick would want to ensure no child is ever turned away from having a wish. His work has forever changed the landscape of Make-A-Wish.
