Nicole's Houston Hearts of Gold
The Nicole's Houston Hearts of Gold Chapter of The Cure Starts Now was formed in honor and memory of Nicole Lee. Nicole was a spunky 7 year old native Texas gal, who was diagnosed with DIPG when she was 5 years old. She loved playing with her 9 year old sister Natalie, dancing, writing and drawing. Nicole wanted to be an artist, teacher and auntie when she grew up. She bravely fought her cancer for 18 months until she earned her angel wings September 2009.
The Cure Starts Now (501c3 Federal Non-Profit) is one of the only cancer foundations dedicated to a “homerun” cure for all cancers, starting first with one of the most deadly and difficult cancers: pediatric brain cancer. Many experts believe that the lessons we learn from fighting pediatric cancer may in fact provide us the critical first step in winning the battle against all forms of cancer, both pediatric and adult.
