Family and friends of Nicole Haymes are uniting to raise money to help her battle breast cancer. Please show your support!

Nicole Haymes is a 32 year old mother of two diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in July. She has already undergone chemotherapy and surgery and will spend the rest of the next calendar year having further surgery, chemo and radiation treatments. Nicole is a hard working mom, but lost her job after her 90 days of FMLA leave ran out. She has two great children, Javan and Jaelyn, in elementary school, and is lucky that her mother Helen can be with her to help during this very trying time. Even with insurance, when she loses her long term disability, she will also lose the ability to pay rent and buy groceries and handle the copays for additional surgeries, treatment and medications and the gas for the many appointments she has weekly. We are hoping to raise money for Nicole and her family to get them through this hard period. Battling cancer takes every bit of strength a person has, and we're hoping to take the financial stress off Nicole's plate so she can focus on regaining her health!

In addition to being a working mom, Nicole is a young writer whose first novel was published last year. Since her diagnosis, she's kept a blog that details with honesty, humor and humility her efforts to navigate a very tough diagnosis, treatment of her cancer and the effects on her family. A recurring theme has been the awareness of a time of real need, and that you can't always take care of everything on your own. We're very grateful for any help you can give when Nicole and her family truly need all our support.
