Brave Me Kid of the Week

April 22nd - April 29th, 2020


Nichole has much to be happy about in life. She LOVES art and music and is even a distant relative of Taylor Swift. She also has sadly faced some very scary times - spending more nights in the hospital than any third grader should have to at that point in her childhood. Her Mom says she finds a way to stay strong because she knows that is the quickest way for her to get back home. She is her own best patient advocate and makes a deal with the nurses and doctors. She tells them “Be gentle with me, be careful with me - and then I’ll be brave!” Brave Me is so PROUD of you Nichole because you know how to stick up for yourself and tell others what you need!

“I really miss my friends and my teachers too. My bestie and I have been friends since Kindergarten when I just walked up to her and asked her if she wanted to be my friend. Anytime I have trouble breathing, I stay calm because my Mom is always right there beside me. The best part of being in the hospital is that I always get popsicles when I can and my favorite flavor is the red one. I love to squeeze my stuffed bear Ola for some extra love!”
