Team Nikki is a group of friends and family of Nicole "Nikki" VonRiesen providing support to a jewel of a woman through her battle with breast cancer and double mastectomy.
Nikki is one of the most beautiful and amazing people that you'll ever meet. She is a light in our lives and always brings a positive presence into any situation.
A couple of months ago, following a visit to her doctor, she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, having seen her mother go through the same battle, she decided to opt for a double mastectomy.
Although she has insurance, her copays, in home hospital bed rental and out of pocket expenses will total $10,000, so despite Nikki urging me not to create this fundraiser, I know that that is a pretty hefty unexpected out of pocket sum to come up with -- So we created this crowdrise to help her to not stress about this one thing while she is trying to take care of herself.
We have set up the Wepay account to deposit directly into Nikki's bank account so that all funding will go directly to her.
