You can also see how much has been raised in Nicola's Memory so far on this page.
Nicola was diagnosed with a condition called Cystic Fibrosis (65 red roses) just after the death of her Aunty Kathryn, who died in her early 20s with the same condition. The family were devastated because they knew more than most what this means. It means having to turn your baby upside down to bang on their backs to loosen mucus that clogs up and scars their lungs, it means holding them down to fit a nasal drip to make sure their body get some nutrition that their malfunctioning pancreas seems to want to deny them, it means trying to fit an intravenous drip in to veins that keep collapsing under the strain because yet another awful bug as found a warm welcoming resting place in their clogged up lungs.
Most CF children look not only healthy but blessed with an amazing beauty, which means, they get very little sympathy for the fight that they and their family face every day against this disease. It is a fight that they are more than likely going to lose before they reach adulthood.
Nicola's life was difficult but it was worth it and you can make it more so by making sure it was not all for nothing. She did not want to die; she was in fact full of life, so lets make sure she has a legacy that lives on.
In the last months of her life she began a blog, you can read it at the link below.
