My Story

Nora is a very brave and strong girl, who is currently battling a brain tumor called Ependymoma. She is a happy person and extremely fun to be around! Nora is always positive about every situation she is in and you will always see her laughing. :) She has a HUGE passion for music and dance and loves to hang out with her friends and go shopping. Nora has an enormous loving heart and she enjoys helping others with anything they need. Not to mention, she keeps people motivated and is going to grow up to be an outstanding leader. After high school, Nora wants to go to cosmetology school. Oh yeah, Nora is also going to be a survivor!
Update on Nora...  She recently had surgery to remove a cancerous tumor on her spine.  The surgery was successful! Nora will be starting chemo or radiation treatments soon.
