Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. This site will be updated regularly by Nicole. In March 2019 I was hospitalized with uncontrollable muscle spasms from what we thought was a pulled muscle. Several scans and 4 hours later we were given information that would shake our world. I had Cancer. Metastatic cancer that had caused bone deterioration and fracturing on my spine, ribs, hips, and femur. I needed immediate surgery to reinforce the deteriorated femur bone by inserting an Intramedullary rod... I'm wearing a brace to help my back and ribs heal. IlI finish with radiation on April 25th and we find out more when we go to West Clinic on May 1st.
