 NORTHVILLE, MI
Hi, I am Nicole Cotter. I am raising money for my friend Lou Hamelin. I first met Lou in Belle River during high school, but we became close friends when we went through nursing school together. Lou lost her mother to cancer at a young age. She has also struggled with cystic fibrosis (a disease that affects her lungs) her whole life. Lou has already been through so much, but she is now facing another battle. She was diagnosed with stage 4 Ovarian/Primary Peritoneal Cancer which is a disease of the lining of her organs. The money will be used toward medical bills, and living expenses for her and her two children. She needs the funds as soon as possible as she begins her battle with this devasting disease. She is a single mom who works full time to support her family and soon may not be capable of doing so. Thank you to everyone who donates, I can't tell you how grateful Lou would be.

It saddens me to share the news that Lou lost her battle with cancer on February 15th. Lou's last days were surrounded by family and friends. As per her request there will be no funeral. In lieu of cards and flowers a GoFundMe will be set up to help fund Quinn and Ella's education. Thank you to everyone who supported Lou through her fight.

Lou is having debulking surgery on Wednesday. It is major surgery to remove as much tumor as they can. Please pray for her that it goes well. Lou wanted me to pass her thoughts along..."Thanks for the cards, prayers, positive thoughts, contributions and support...It has meant so much, touched me and lessened the burden....

I donated because I care about the well being of both Quinn and Ella. They need support on every level right now. I also was devastated by the loss of a close parent at a young age. Nobody understands the pain unless they've been through it.
