Imagine being a thirteen year-old girl and watching your hair fall out, wishing you could go to school and learn with your friends instead of laying in a hospital bed for months with a number of feeding tubes shoved down your throat. Imagine not being able to walk. Nicole is a thirteen year old girl that has been fighting cancer. Her & her mother were quickly transported to San Antonio where she could receive proper treatment, leaving behind her two younger brothers. Nicole’s mother quit her job to be by her side, forced with the decision of letting their house go in Laredo, and her sons are staying with family, hardly able to visit.
