Friends and Family,
If you have not already heard, we've been struck with some devastating news. Our great friend, Nicole Bradee Hobson, has been diagnosed with breast cancer. Nicole found a lump in her breast and went to the doctor to have it investigated but with no history of breast cancer in her family and being the mother of two, Nicole expected this to merely be a routine check up. However, the biopsy showed the tumor was cancerous. Unfortunately because Nicole is so young her cancer is extremely aggressive. She has HER2+ breast cancer, which means her cells are dividing and multiplying quickly, and the cancer is invasive. Nicole will need surgery, radiation and chemotherapy.
Now, here is the kicker.....
Nicole does not have health insurance. About a year and a half ago, her husband was laid off due to the economy affecting his field of work. They were just on the rebound of that struggle when this hit. Currently, they both work full time and are paid on an hourly basis. In the upcoming months, they will need to take time off for her surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatments. In the first week alone, after learning Nicole had cancer, they both had to spend four days away from work.
This burden is too heavy for them to bear alone. So we must all join together and support our friend!!!!!
The Hobson family needs all the help and support they can get. And what better way to kick start this than to have a FUNDRAISER AT PJ SKIDOOS ON MARCH 18th!!!
There will be an AUCTION to raise money for Nicole as well as any generous donations. Here is Nicole's website: http://www.giveforward.org/teamnicole/
