Like every other 7-year-old, Nicole just wanted to be a kid. She loved being with her family and spending time with her dog, Koda and guinea pig, Princess. Her favorite toys were her Monster High Dolls and Littlest Pet Shop.
Nicole was diagnosed with leukemia on September 11, 2008
Nicole finished treatment on March 23, 2011 and then relapsed 2 short months later. After countless doctor and hospital visits, Nicole received a bone marrow transplant in January of 2012. With a perfectly matched donor, Nicole surprised everyone when she went home just 30 days after her transplant. It was truly a miracle as she was expected to be in the hospital for a minimum of 100 days!
