Over the past 4 weeks our office has been on a mission to help the Nicolay family, by donating 10% of every massage. Today $450 was sent to the Nicolay family! Thank you for scheduling your appointment during the last four weeks! It was truly appreciated. It was an honor to help the Nicolay family. Thank you again!
"Michelle Zavatsky-Nicolay was diagnosed at age 36, shortly after having her son. She was completely healthy other than some post baby issues that many women face. Her diagnosis is Mucousal Melanoma (internal melanoma - not skin cancer). It is extremely rare and aggressive. Most people diagnosed with this form are well over 60 and do not survive long. She has already beaten the time lines that were originally given to her. She has been through a surgery, harsh drug side effects, the loss of her hair, some issues with skin cancer, rashes, nausea, excruciating joint pain and fatigue all while remaining strong in her faith. What she faces now is a very short list of drugs available to her. Her cancer has returned and she now is being put on the only two drugs left on the market for this kind of cancer. So, now is when she needs prayers and support the most."

I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to help this family during a difficult time. During a time when no words seem to be appropriate. The best way I can think of to help is through the power of massage therapy. To be able to help in just a small way to take away a small amount of stress.
On a personal/side note, I grew up with Michelle's younger sister Monique. To me growing up, Michelle was that "cool older sister" that I wish I had as a kid. From what I imagine she is not only still the "cool older sister" she also embodies a tremendous amount of strength, courage and beauty.
