In Remembrance of Nicolerod


Sadly, our beautiful nicolerod passed away Friday evening, September 22. She’d asked her friend, member beesy_the_other_one, to let us know. I’m just so sad and heartbroken over the news.

    Nicolerod, may she rest in peace and may her family find comfort in knowing how much we loved her. She always supported everyone and I had so wished she had been able to have her son, daughter-in-law and grandson living close by and to make more memories with them.

    My mom has recently been diagnosed with liver mets (she has been many years stage IV) and Nicole's contribution un the liver mets thread has been huge.

    She is pain free now but is it very sad.

    Thanks you, Nicole, for all the info you shared over the years.

    Rest in Peace, NicoleRod. She struggled so. None of her treatments lasted for very long. She is finally at peace from this awful disease.

    I was always captured by Nicole’s fighting spirit, her perseverance. She did not want to go gently into the night. She sought treatment after treatment after treatment after treatment. The woman had so much class and was such a force even as she dealt daily with an aggressive, devastating disease. She left a lasting mark on my heart and I am so sad that she is gone; gone far too soon. May her beautiful, indomitable spirit rest in peace.

    As much as I usually dislike pugilistic terms to describe dealing with mbc, Nicole was definitely a fighter in every and best sense of the word. Rest well, Nicole.

    What sad news to wake up to. Another bright light goes out. Since I joined BCO — she was always there, supportive, caring, sometimes funny, sometimes brutally honest. Good-bye, fly free, Nicole

    DivineMrsM, Thank you for sharing this sad info. Nicole was a force for sure. I came to learn that she was a great researcher and she was not afraid to try some alternative cancer fighters while she utilized the best traditional cancer treatment available. I remember a photo she posted from her son's wedding a couple of years ago and she was just beautiful. I know she was close to RRabbit, who we all miss dearly. I will picture them together in heaven, pain free. Rest in peace, Nicole.

    I'm sorry to hear this news. Nicole was a consistent and strong presence on the boards when I was first diagnosed. She shared so much with us, her hopes, fears, frustration. I can only hope her last moments were peaceful and that her family can find some comfort in this very sad time.

    It is sad to hear of Nicol's passing. I always admired her determination to explore new treatments and shared what she learned. It is so unfair that non of them worked for her. she will be missed 💔

    thanks Divine for starting this thread in Nicol's honor.

    I remember back when I first joined how deep she seemed to be into shutting down pathways and trying new approaches, while chasing down her next treatments. She really was a force of nature trying to squeeze every last day out, but she knew when her time was up and appeared to have accepted the situation (on here at least).

    I also remember her saying at some point in late 2021 that she had long known that 22 was her number and that she would pass in 2022. I guess it really was her number after all, but just a lot longer than she thought :) I hope she was able to achieve her goals with her family and now can rest easy.

    I'm so sad to hear this news about Nicolerod. She was relentless in her pursuit of a treatment that would give her more time but none of them worked for her for long enough. Nonetheless, she was supportive and helpful to others and cheered for those who had better luck with treatments. My condolences to her family and to everyone whose life she touched.

    Nicole has been on my mind since she said goodbye on BCO. I wish her family comfort in the days ahead and I wish to embrace her strength and dignity in my own future.
