Nico's Dream

non-profit organization with one goal: ending childhood cancer

Kick Cancer Soccer Camp
  • The Kick Childhood Cancer Soccer Camp is Back!  Save the Date: Saturday, December 10, 2022, at the San Antonio STAR Soccer Complex.


  • Established the Nicolás Ramírez Castro Pediatric Cancer Research Fund at UT Health San Antonio to advance childhood cancer medicine, pediatric liver cancer research, therapies and clinical trials.

  • Provided financial help to a pediatric cancer patient and her family to support palliative care costs.

  • Activated new partnerships and community support for children and families experiencing cancer.

2021 Reflections 

COVID19 disrupted our world, our gatherings, and for the second year the annual Kick Childhood Cancer Soccer Camp---but our commitment to end childhood cancers continues strong. 


With the generosity of so many supporters in 2021 we:

  • donated books to the Nico Children's Library located at the East Meadows Affordable Housing Community in San Antonio

  • provided presents and gift cards during the holidays to children and families served by University Health System Foundation

  • Worked with UT Health to establish a pediatric liver cancer research fund in honor of Nico
