Nicole's memorial - January 7, 2017

From Nicole's husband: We have scheduled what will no doubt be a loud, boisterous, raucous and loving (very informal) memorial for Nicole. I already plan on printing and enlarging for display your touching comments to my previous three posts.

It would be wonderful if you could take the time to tape something to play - I think a video would be especially moving. My plan is to loop videos of Nicole and remembrances of her to play throughout the day.

I have set up a special email for the memorial: nicole_bilotti-memorial@yahoo.com Please feel free to email any sound or video thoughts for the memorial or if you need other information or an address to send things like the way we did it in Nicole's and my youth.

Thanks again for all your thoughts and support. Perhaps some day I'll be able to reply personally.

I love this idea, Don. Hard to believe that a woman I never even met meant so much to me - and helped me so much through some very rough times. I'm trying to try creating a short video on my ipad, amd will send it along once I figure out how to do it. Thank you for keeping Nicole's love so vivid and alive here for me. XO

Sorry for those typos! I'm GOING to try creating a short video....AND will send it along......
From Don: that would be really sweet. I know Nicole would have been moved and flattered by it. She always was when someone would speak directly to her - she'd always tell me about it and I could tell it touched her deeply.

What a great idea.
Bless you as you celebrate the life of a wonderful lady.

Nicole's Obituary

From Nicole's husband: I hope to include a link to Nicole's obituary, which should be published in today's, Sunday's and Monday's print edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. The pictures reveal Nicole much better than whatever paltry words I could summon. I knew she would want to thank everyone who supported her, gave her strength and love, so I of course mentioned the BFAC community. When she was well enough, she took great comfort and happiness in posting, reading others' posts and the back and forth responses. I am very grateful and thankful for everything BFAC gave to her. Don

Thank you, Don, for posting dear Nicole's obit. It was so nice to see those great pictures! I can't tell you too many times how much she did for me - how she lifted me up - during the last three years. And thank you for continuing to acknowledge this amazing online community, and for joining in as a participant yourself. You have been through alot, and have much to offer. 💪🏽💜 Sue
Thanks so much for sharing Don. She was so giving and supportive. I will miss her tons. And thanks for posting about BFAC, you are both so kind. xoxxo, Jill

What a lovely and loving essay on her life. Thank you.

And thank you for suggesting donations to Blog for a Cure, where she shared so much of herself and encouraged so many.

Hugs.
Don, I thank you for posting this link and sharing with us. As has been already said, but not enough, she was loved by all of us here. I will never forget the encouraging words she often said to me when I needed them the most and the smiles she gave us all with her sense of humor. She was a star--one who will continue to shine brightly in our hearts and up above. Thank you for thinking of all of us in your time of loss. I wish you peace and strength as you carry on.

Thanks Don. I'm so happy you and Nicole got together, you seem to have been kindred spirits, I just would have been happier had cancer not happened. You seem to have a loving family which I hope will ease some the pain you are feeling in your heart. Nicole had an accomplished life and she was loved by all who knew her; and that's the best legacy any of us could hope for. I will not forget her. None of us will. Take care of yourself Don, and the kitties too. Please drop a line to us once in a while, if you feel the need. I think Nicole would like it. God bless.

Don thank you for letting us know. So sorry for your loss, she will be missed. She will always be in my heart and memories for kind and funny heart. Nicole had great words of wisdom and strength. She helped me through some dark times and lifted my heart many times. Can't forget her laughter and humor. God bless you and your family.
Don, I can see why you two were such a powerful team. Your turn of phrase in the obituary fits Nicole to a "t" and there is no way cancer won. I wish you and your family a lovely Thanksgiving, although I know that without Nicole it won't be the same.

Larynx Cancer

Stage 2

No

Erbitux (Cituximab)

It's so expensive: monetarily, physically, and emotionally.

That humanity transcends even cancer

Be love.

Cannabis oils: both THC and CBDs

Lungs

Phase 1 Immunotherapy combination trial: MED14736(Durvalumab) and Tremelimumab started Dec. 2nd 2015 at UCSF- Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center.

CA Pacific Medical Center - San Francisco

March 31, 2011

Dysphonia, plus on & off sore throat

I had three MED14736 with Tremelimumab combination infusions, once every four weeks starting at the beginning of Dec. 2015. After the 3rd infusion "immunotherapy induced colitis" set in. By the end of February I was clearly loosing the colitis "war", so I was given an infusion of the anti-colitis Remicade. The colitis marginally improved; but a bowel rupture March 9th required an emergency Ileostomy. Meanwhile, the cancer seems to be in retreat.
