Nicole passed away early this morning. Nicole was deaf. this was caused by a reaction to treatment for leukemia when she was six-years-old. Now 13-years-old the leukemia came out of remission and in the past few days the seriousness of her condition became evident. There was some hope of further treatment and Daniel quickly started a video campaign to raise funds on behalf of the family for this, but it was too late, this morning leukemia finally overtook her. This photo is how I remember Nicole – one of the happiest kids I have met - with the best ever sense of humour and always a smile. My thoughts and prayers are with her parents, and also with Daniel, James and Plum who regarded Nicole as a baby sister.
