Noelle’s Celebration of Life Fund

Noelle Balfour to anyone who knew her was the sunshine who lit up the room. She had this gorgeous glowing smile and presence that lifted everyone around her. She was a woman who lived life to its fullest, had the courage to chase her dreams, and strength to find happiness in the darkest of times. Her beauty radiated from the inside out. She left a mark on everyone’s heart, and when we think of her, though we’re sad, we can’t help but smile; because we still remember the positive energy she’d make us feel. That is a little glance of what I saw, and knew about Noelle. We played water polo together at Orange Glen High School. I have not seen her since senior year, but I remember what it felt like to be around her like it was yesterday.
Everyone who knew Noelle knows how much she loved her family. I created this GoFundMe account as a representation of her friends. We have all come together to do something to show our love and support. We all know that she would want us to help her father and family in this hard time, and that she would do the same for us.
For those who don’t know, Noelle was in a pool accident last year and had been making strides in her recovery. Her mother passed away this year and her father; along with her caregivers had been helping her through recovery.
Our sweet friend, Noelle, took her own life October 11th 2017. We all miss and love her so much, and I am asking you to join us in helping to support her family financially for her funeral, and anything else they may need. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
