Nicole Brooks-DeOrio Medical Fund

$66,900 of $70,000 goal

Raised by 763 people in 24 months
Created July 12, 2017
Nicole was diagnosed with breast cancer last August. Since then, she has gone through extensive surgery and treatment. She was on the road to recovery and the future looked positive. Unfortunately, in late spring, she started to experience symptoms of concern. A colonoscopy revealed that she has a tumor of significant size in the colon/rectal region of the body. Further tests and scans revealed that she has two smaller sized tumors on her liver. Nicole is currently undergoing chemotherapy to shrink all tumors. She is scheduled for surgery to remove the tumors on her liver in August. After that surgery, she will continue with chemotherapy and radiation to treat the other tumor. Surgery to remove the other tumor will be at a later time. Needless to say, her world...our world has been turned upside down.
Many friends and family have reached out asking how they can help.
Well, through your donations--medical expenses, meals, and other expenses can be funded for the next few months. Any amount will help this wonderful family. Thank you for your friendship and love.

The GREAT news is that May 7th is Nicole’s 50th BIRTHDAY! The not so great update is that Nicole will be having surgery on May 6th to remove two more tumors from her liver. After several months of Chemotherapy, the tumors have shrunk and will be removed along with a portion of her liver. She will have a Chemo pump placed directly in her liver in an attempt to prevent a reoccurrence. Although she will be spending her birthday at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, her spirit, will and perseverance is remarkable. The best gift she could ask for is your prayers, love and support.

Another update....Unfortunately, after recent follow up scans, two new tumors were found in Nicole’s liver. She will have surgery again on Monday followed by a few weeks of Chemotherapy and another surgery. We are all disappointed and saddened by this most recent set back. However, after hearing Nicole’s voice and her fierce determination and strength we know she will continue to fight. Your support, love and prayers are greatly appreciated.
