Our History


On February 8, 2015, Nicole was diagnosed with Acute Monoblastic Leukemia (AML).  At the time, she was a wife and mother of two young children practicing criminal law in Connecticut.  She had to put life and. motherhood on hold to focus on her health.  Since then, she has relapsed twice most recently after stem cell transplant in May of 2017.  Since then, she has been grateful for the freedom the support of her family and friends have given her and her husband to focus on her health.  She is doing well now and looking forward to working with other patients and their families who are facing similar challenges
