Attitude is everything!

Nikki's attitude is why Bite Me Cancer was formed in September 2010. She was only 17 years old and had been diagnosed with a rare form of thyroid cancer just 5 months earlier.  Nikki's goal for the foundation was and still is to provide inspiration, education and research.

Bite Me Cancer provides Teen Support Bags to teenagers battling all types of cancers. Bite Me Cancer also focuses on directly funding research grants for new treatment options for thyroid cancer, one of the fastest increasing cancers in the country.


The highly successful and still growing Teen Support Bags program provides inspiration for teenagers with all cancers in every state and DC. Almost 8,600 teenagers have received a bag!


We increase awareness of thyroid cancer.  It is certainly a misunderstood cancer. It is not “the good cancer.” The thyroid is a critical organ in the body, helping to keep many organs, such as the heart and brain, running correctly.


Thyroid cancer research is a critical piece of our mission. Currently there is no cure, and some of the current treatments don't work very well. We directly fund our 2-year grants so that we can stay involved with our researchers and their progress.



Come to one of our events and share the Bite Me Cancer spirit. We put on some of our own events, and then we have other organizations & individuals offering to hold 3rd party events for us.
