Nikki Mitchell Foundation is dedicated to providing comfort and relief for those affected by pancreatic cancer, while raising awareness and supporting research that directly and indirectly affects pancreatic patients.

Join the Fight Against Pancreatic Cancer


In December 2010, Nikki Mitchell was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and given a possible three-month prognosis. Taking the bull by the horns she consulted with renowned medical professionals around the country and her zeal for life never diminished. After thirty-one months of battling this disease, Nikki embarked upon her final adventure on July 9th, 2013.

Nikki shared her last wishes with her best friend, Rhonda Miles, who has dedicated her own life to carrying out Nikki's vision for pancreatic cancer research, support, and patient services. With your help, we can touch even more lives.

Where Do The Funds Go?




NMF funds innovative research at various cancer centers nationwide. They have partnered with the Pancreas Club to give a $20,000 seed grant to a promising research project, an award to a young scientist, and a Bold Women in Science Award.

Patient Services


Through the Bridge of Wings program, NMF provides patients in need with free transportation to treatments, house cleanings, groceries, holiday meals and services tailored to specific needs. NMF also provides long-term lodging near world-class treatment facilities through Hope Suite Hope.



NMF premiered their Public Service Announcement to a sold out crowd at the Franklin Theatre in the summer of 2019. Currently, NMF is in post production of a documentary about Nikki’s flight around the world and her battle with pancreatic cancer.
