A Great Day

Hey it’s Nick here. I am the founder of Nick’s Picks. Nick’s Picks is my non-profit dedicated to delivering backpacks of fun items that I loved when I was in the hospital to other kids just out of transplant, or on isolation. I got some stuff to tell you today.

On a recent Wednesday, I went up to UCLA transplant center. In case you don’t why that is so special to me, it is where I got my liver transplant last year. But this was no ordinary trip to UCLA. I was up there to discuss some new issues about my liver transplant. While I was up there I got to give my doctors gift baskets. Also there was something that made the day so joyful besides seeing all my awesome doctors again. I got to give out my Nick’s Picks backpacks to the kids there. But best of all I was able to meet the parents of a kid that had a four-organ transplant I also got to find out that the first time he smiled in months was when he got a Nick’s Picks. It made my day.

One of my favorite quotes is:
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others”
(Gandhi)

I believe this is true

– Nick
