As most of you know, in August 2013, Nicole was diagnosed with breast cancer. It came as no surprise that Nicole dealt with the diagnosis like she deals with most things in life, with courage, strength, motivation and a "go ahead, I dare you to slow me down" attitude. We all know not to stand in Nicole's way when she sets her mind to something. When Nicole wants something done, she does it; and she does it better than anyone else. Apparently, cancer didn't get the memo. Our Nicky fought, fought hard and has taken control of what can only be described as the most difficult battle of her life. No one had any doubt that Nicole would beat this, but it was the way that she handled the long months of chemo and radiation that speaks volumes about who she is. The term "one of a kind" is thrown around much too often, but in this case, it doesn't even come close to encompass the way that Nicole's friends and family feel about her. Through chemo, surgery and radiation, Nicole had a smile on her face; she continued to be the best friend, sister, daughter, aunt, lawyer, and overall amazing human being that she has always been. We have all been so beyond blessed to have Nicole in our lives; we are the lucky ones.
Nicole is the protector, she is the caretaker- the one who always wants to find an answer and make everything okay. When she was diagnosed, everyone around her wanted to make everything okay, but many of us felt helpless. Cancer certainly takes an emotional toll, but it also takes a financial toll. Socci's Soldiers are raising money to ease the financial burden that Nicole has faced as a result of her diagnosis. Over the next year, Nicole will have more surgeries to endure and we hope that our support will help her along the way! Her team will be walking in the 2014 Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk and this next year is dedicated to Nicole. Any donations are appreciated and will go a long way to give back to Nicole all of the years of love and support that she has given to all of us.
