    I miss Coley dearly and honour the short while I studied with her. She was a special young lady with a beautiful mind, and deserved the world <3

    I didn't have the opportunity to meet Nicole but certainly learned of her great spirit and love for her family. She is deeply missed. Karen.

    I'm sorry I never got the chance to really get to know Nicole. She was clearly an incredibly strong, mature and honest human being.

About Nicole Kristine Eidsvik

Nicole Kristine Eidsvik
March 29, 1994 - November 22, 2011

In August 2008, Nicole was diagnosed with Stage IV alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. She was fourteen years old. The primary site was in her pelvis, but ARMS had metastasized to her spine, pelvis, lymph glands and lungs. Her journal speaks for her:    

September 1, 2008 at home “My problems are not that catastrophic or scary, so my experiences in the last few days are pretty new to me. I have been diagnosed with cancer. Yeah, shocked? So was I... The hard part is telling people. Like what do you say? Yup, I’ve got cancer, what’s up with you?!?! I have no idea how to tell people. I’m learning a lot about people though, which is that most people are kind, caring and amazing. Support has been flowing in from everywhere, and my church has been really great too. But I don’t feel like thinking about it right now, or anything.”   

January 2, 2010, ARMS in Remission, at BC Children’s Hospital “I don’t know why I am still here, why I survived when other good kids died, but I’m going to make the most of the rest of my life. It’s important to always remember to view my life as a gift, so I don’t start taking things for granted. I got my final scans back by the way, they came back clear. So I guess the only thing left to say is: "’Welcome to normalcy.’”   ARMS returned in August 2010. 

September 28, 2011 at Quest University "The weather today seems to be celebrating with us Quest students at the end of our block. I feel very satisfied with our Cornerstone class, I got a lot out of it. It just feels good finishing something... It bothers me wondering about how much time I have left, whatever it is, I feel it couldn't possibly be enough. Other students with their plans extending years ahead of them don't know how lucky they are. But the sun is warm and beautiful on my skin and I will get to see [my dog] Gromit tonight; tonight is a night for celebrating."

October 20, 2011 at Quest University “My body's holding up. Sometimes I feel like a scarecrow precariously held together with straw and sticks. How long can we hold Nicole together? I joke, but it scares me.” 

After 70 weeks of chemo, radiation, and surgery in her three year battle, Nicole died on November 22, 2011. She was seventeen years old.
