I posted this a little while ago, but tonight is the night. I decided I wanted to share this again. You might recognize Nicole from several other photo shoots. We've been good friends since kindergarten.
Yes that would be.... yours truly. :)
August 18, 2009 Nicole Lindemann Cassity was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer. At the very young age of 23, Nicole will be undergoing a double mastectomy. Her surgery is scheduled for October 1st, 2009. Even with this drastic measure she will always live with the fear of reoccurrence.
Nicole is an amazing young woman. She is the mother of Morgan, a beautiful, bright-eyed one year old. She is the wife to Brock Cassity, a caring and compassionate husband. Sister to Jessica & Michelle. A loving daughter and friend.
October 9th, the community of Marsing, Idaho will be dedicating their love, time & money to help Nicole with the financial burden of breast cancer. It is our sincere wish that Nicole has the opportunity to heal physically and emotionally without the additional worries of endless medical expenses.
Please come and join us for a fun evening, good food, great people and an excellent cause. Be a part of Nicole’s journey from cancer patient to cancer survivor.
Every woman diagnosed with breast cancer is someone’s mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend. Stand up and fight with us!
Fight like a girl!
** October 1st, 2009 **
Nicole’s surgery went very well today. She is in good spirits and very thankful for all the support and prayers. If everything goes as planned she will be recovering from home tomorrow. She continues to amaze us with her strength and courage. She really is an inspiration.
