Mother Honors Late Son by Granting Wishes to Young People Battling Cancer

Jennifer Hudson welcomes Kelli Ritschel Boehle, the founder of The Nikolas Ritschel Foundation — also known as Nik's Wish — a charitable organization that grants wishes to young adults aged 18-24 battling critical illnesses. Kelli’s youngest son, Nik, passed away from a rare form of cancer just before his 18th birthday and his last wish was to help grant wishes to young adults who wouldn’t otherwise be given the chance.
