Nickles for Nicole
Organized by: Franci Davis
Nicole is a devoted single mother of three beautiful children, who recently was diagnosed with breast cancer in both breasts. She is still in the early steps of this race, although we fear she's had it for more than a year. We should know what stage of cancer she's in within the next couple of weeks, following further testing. Nicole is a very funny, extremely caring person who has overcome more trials in her 31 years of life than most people have in a lifetime. She is one of the strongest women I've ever known. She is also my daughter. Earning minimum wage in a small town , she currently struggles with the daily costs of living and raising children. She receives no child support from the children's father. She walks to and from work the majority of the time, because she can't afford a car. Plus, with this new battle she is facing there will be more bills and expenses thrown her way, and probably times during treatments that she won't be able to work at all. Our family is heartbroken. We are anxious for more answers. This is Nicole's story. It is about her. However, because she is a part of our family, it is a family thing. We, her parents are doing all that we can, but we can not do it alone. Please consider donating whatever you can. Pocket change,"nickels", will mean just as much to us as a large donation. We are so blessed with such a large support system made of friends, family, and church family. We are reaching out to you in our time of need. I am so proud of her for the wonderful, great attitude she has right now. Please help her keep that positive outlook. Our faith in God is strong. We know he has a plan for all of us. We are leaving this in His hands and relying on Him for strength. We know that there are lessons to be learned from every trial we are given. This is a test we will pass. Nicole and our family will be counting our blessings along the way. We will be stronger. Thank you for reading this to the end. Thank you even more for your prayers and any help you can offer.
