We care about them as much as you do
In memory of Nicole, this trust fund sponsors an annual Fund Raiser and Silent Auction. 100% of all monies raised from this event go towards helping TERMINALLY sick children!
Nicole was 11 years old in 1993 when she was diagnosed with cancer on her spine. After undergoing 28 surgeries in 3 years, she endured paralysis and unthinkable pain. Her battle ended at the age of 14 in August of 1997.
100% of all proceeds raised from our annual fund raiser is used for the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Oncology patients and The Believe in Tomorrow Foundation. We are proud to be one of the first sponsors for a new Johns Hopkins foundation for the research and development of bone and soft tissue sarcomas. We are honored to be a part of this endeavor to help children with a special form of cancer. Osteosarcoma, the type in which Nicole had, adds a devastating effect to an already horrendous disease in the form of amputations of limbs.In Nikki’s case, her spine had to be amputated while others lose arms and legs.
Even in Nicole’s worst of times she always worried about others. She would find a way to make people laugh and take a look at the world around them. Nikki’s greatest gift to our family was the knowledge that there is a power in giving to others. Anyone who knew Nicole was amazed by her tremendous spirit in that she always saw the good in any situation. When told she would not survive her recurrence of cancer, Nicole turned to us and said, “No more tears, they won’t help.” Nikki’s last days were spent worrying about her family and the people she loved the most!
In order to help our foundation continue to be successful, while keeping Nicole’s memory and spirit alive, we need the help of individuals such as yourself. Please help by making monetary donations, donating items for auction and/or by participating in our group ticket sales.
