In February 2015, a great kid passed away. His name was Nick Konkler, a student at Auburn Riverside High School in Auburn, Washington who designed and developed a project to help others that would grow bigger than himself. As a child, he was frequently in and out of the hospital, fighting a brain tumor and two bouts of AML Leukemia. However, Nick never let these difficult conditions put him down. He constantly looked for ways to brighten up other’s lives. While in the hospital, he noticed that small children had a difficult time walking with their large and cumbersome IV poles. Often times, these IV poles would be drab and unfriendly which he believed made hospitals more intimidating for kids. Nick wanted to make the Lilypads easier to deal with and more enjoyable, so he designed a wooden platform that fit on the bottom of IV poles, where kids could sit and be pushed around. He planned on completing his project and putting the Lilypads into use when he got out of the hospital. Unfortunately, Nick never did get to see his project to completion.
