Nicole’s Hope on Wheels: Grant Support for Pediatric Oncology

Nicole Munoz was only a junior in high school when she underwent treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma at Advocate Children’s Hospital. Although she was forced to miss the second half of her junior year, she was still able to graduate with honors and was eventually declared cancer free in the summer of 2009. Nicole continued to receive clean bills of health for the next six years, until she was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, an extremely rare cancer in the fall 2015.
