My Story

Hi! I'm Nicole and I have participated as an honored kid for the St. Baldrick's Foundation since I was thirteen. I am happy to support this great organization! Back in April of 2012, my life as I knew it completely changed. I was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma(bone cancer). I had a very rare tumor located on the skin of my left leg. This was the 15th recorded case of a tumor like this ever to be documented. Sounds scary right? It was, but with the deep support from my family and the highly skilled doctors at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia I now am eight years cancer free!!! I am enjoying life as a teen and embracing every minute of my college years. Thank you for honoring me and fighting for all the kids who have, had or lost their battle with cancer.
