Serving the Mission of Hope

Meet the Noah's Bandage Project Team

Our mission is to end childhood cancer through awareness, support, and the gift of hope.

Noah's Dad

Scott Wilson

Scott, along with his 3 other children, Conner, Kailey and Natalie, carry on Noah’s Bandage Project. Their passion for NBP comes from the strength they saw in Noah during his battle. Noah never wavered; he never gave up. Noah’s heart was to help others, no matter what, and to bring hope to kids fighting cancer. It is in this spirit that Noah’s family carries on his project. Noah’s journey exposed them to the horrors of childhood cancer and the devastation that comes from the lack of funding and awareness. By carrying on Noah’s Bandage Project, they hope to give kids fighting cancer a chance at a life. As a day-job, Scott is an Account Executive for Firemon, a network security software company based out of Overland Park, KS.

Jen Fescoe

Jen Fescoe is a Physical Education & Health teacher at an alternative high school in Mission, Kansas.

Jen knew from an early age that she wanted to Make An Impact.  She started her career in education, but always had a passion for sports and helping others.  While working at NC State, the Charlotte Bobcats, the St. Louis Blues, and the Kansas City Royals the passion to help others was fulfilled by working with local nonprofits.  This led to becoming an Event Coordinator with the Muscular Dystrophy Association and learning how to raise funds for the needs of others.

Her husband Bob Fescoe (radio personality at 610sports) introduced the Wilson family to Jen and their two daughters Delaney & Caydee and the two families had an instant bond!

Board Member

Abbie Connelly

My name is Abbie Connelly.  I am native to Kansas City.  I grew up in Raytown, MO, with my parents and four sisters.  We are all very close and all still live in the area.  I graduated from University of Missouri-Columbia, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Science-Nursing.  During my time at MU I was involved with the Dance Marathon that benefited Children’s Miracle Network.  After graduating, I had my son Dillon, he is almost 14
years old now!

The Why: I love being a part of Noah’s Bandage Project Board of Directors because children’s health is near and dear to my heart as a mother and a nurse. When I met Scott and Deb I couldn’t help but feel a connection and need to do more for our kids.  I love the group that has been established and can’t believe how much has been accomplished since its inception with Noah just collecting colorful bandages in the toy tub.

Our mission is to end childhood cancer through awareness, support, and the gift of hope. We do this through the collection of cool, fun bandages for kids and raise money for pediatric cancer research.
