The Breidenbach Family


We all know families whose world changed in a matter of hours with the diagnosis of a life threatening illness in one of their children.   

Our Mission​

Our mission is to grant wishes and distribute funds that address the needs and wishes of Northland children - and their families - with life threatening illnesses. 

What We Do

The Northern Lights Foundation seeks to ease the financial stresses placed on these families by providing monetary grants that the families can use at their discretion.

September Feature Family​

Easton and Isabella were born at 23 weeks (17 weeks early) to Rachael and Chris Erickson. Each child weighed just over one pound. Between feeding tubes, a tracheotomy, surgeries, chronic complications, and months in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Rachael had to quit her job to be there for the twins. When a parent has a child or children in the hospital, the last thing on their mind should be their finances. The Northern Lights Foundation was able to step up and support the Erickson family with a discretionary grant in their time of need.
