Nisha volunteered at the Hopkinton in 2023 and shared her contagious smile and kindness with everyone around.

“Volunteering is deeply meaningful to me due to my family's history with cancer. By offering my time and compassion, I aim to bring comfort and strength to those in need. Volunteering helps me be a role model for my kids, instilling values of empathy and resilience. I hope to create a positive impact in the lives of cancer patients and inspire my kids to continue the legacy of service.”
