Nicola Jones healthy update

New look/ New outlook






















“Okay really?” You are saying…is she nuts? The big bad C a dream? a gift? Honestly as far as gifts go- if I knew what was inside… I would have set that box on fire in the back 40 before opening it. BUT I had no choice in the matter, this special delivery came without a receipt and only in my size. Yes it is true, I asked for this- I just never thought it was coming in this shape and colour. Not something I would have riffled through the rack for- but none the less made for me.

Thanks to you and your love, prayers and support I have learned the greatest lesson of my life and fortified my heavy artillery with some pretty bad-ass weapons. Weapons of truth, love, light and of GOD. Thanks to your devoted, humbling and limitless encouragement I know that this is a blessing and that I am firmly held in the light.

Ohhh- I have been through hellish bouts of chemo, moments of fear and confusion and yes I still face some more no doubt. My hair fell out, my face freaked out and some days I look more alien than human but I am loved- I AM LOVED and now know- my dream is coming true.

All my life I have wanted to be a healer and to bring the light. I wanted to lift people up and be a force that drew us closer together. And so I have. Who knew in order to be a healer, I had to be sick?? Yay me! I get to witness humanity at it’s finest, I get to be on the recieving end of prayer. Through my scary plot twist, we all become more courageous and more in love with each other. Yay you!! For following through, walking your talk- reaching out and being your best self.  I love you even more now. I feel I have witnessed the very essence of you- and YOU are breathtaking.

This has been a fascinating journey- too bad I had to learn it through my body instead of a great book or movie -but maybe it was so I would be forced to pay full attention to the lessons. I can’t wait to tell you all what I have learned! As I focus on recovery I am also working diligently on a book- one I think will change the rules on healing forever.

Hope you read it one day get something out of it- I sure did.

Please do share this and help me respond to the thousands of caring emails asking how I am feeling… I want everyone to know that in my heart – I am better than ever.

Be well my good friends, stay in touch- be happy

  10. Andrea says:

    We all feel in love with you a little more too Nicola. When I say you are our hero I truly mean that. Melissa Etheridge has a long I run for hope, I believe it is called. It is about her facing her challenges with cancer. I hope you can check out the song. Through your tough times pls remember we are with you every step of the way. We wont let you down. Lots of love xoxo. Andrea

  11. Kyle says:

    Nicola, you will be in my thoughts and prayer. We miss seeing you on CH. I wish more peole could have the positive attitude you have! I remember when we first met…working at Abinitio in Jackson Square.

    Keep up the fight and you will win!

  12. Wendy Lowden says:

    Nicola, you have come so far on this journey. When we want to help others, to be healers, sometimes it is so hard to let others help US. Yet, this is often when we learn the greatest lessons in life. You are amazing, and I was so glad to read your update, and feel the light shining in you. As you continue on your journey, you will be in my prayers.

  13. Tammy Hardcastle says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. With your positive attitude you can conquer anything. I wish you the very best & miss seeing you on CHCH.

  14. Janine Forrest says:

    Hi Nicole,
    I was wondering just the other day about you and your amazing attitude. The other night my brother told me about his co-worker and their three year old daughter. She was diagnosed with a brain tumour 3 weeks ago and she is terminal. They cannot operate because it is in the brain stem…then I thought of you….your attitude, reaching out, prayer, natural healing, etc. and how you are like this family’s; they have an amazing attitude each day their daughter wakes up. They want to enjoy each day, each moment and not let this disease into their home. They get up each day and ask their previous girl, “what do you want to do today?” Amazing! Inspirational….like you! We all need to learn! Life is precious and short! We all get caught up in the moment and forget the purpose of each breath. You help everyone remember, just like this amazing family! Thanks to you, you will save many lives! Take care! Keep strong and touching the lives of so many. Janine

  15. Rita says:

    Hi Nicola,
    I’ve been there and experienced it all. I totally get it. I too found the experience came with blessings and lessons learned. God bless you and may He continue to shine His light through you. Peace and love.

  16. Mark Taylor says:

    Nicola, we are all loved by God and we would be terrible members of the body of Christ if we did not pray for each other. Praise God for your amazing attitude and keep up the fight and we will continue to pray for you. Remember all the good things you need to fight for and the fight will be easy. .God bless you..from myself, Sheila, Evan and Cole. (From soccer a couple of seasons ago).

  17. Dean Stoltz says:

    Looking good Nicola! Keep up the good fight. xo

  20. Rosanne says:

    Nicola, you are an inspiration to me. You’ve encouraged me to live my life to the fullest each and every day. Prayers go out to you and wishing you a full recovery.

  21. Fiona Petit says:

    Beautifully said Nicola. You are amazing and I (like lots of others) miss you on CH! Looking forward to seeing you back there soon :)

  22. Mark Leslie says:

    Your spirit and strength are an inspiration and am certain the book you are working on will inspire many others to find the strength and courage to get through similar trials and struggles.

    If you need any help with the book, either the creation, the publication or spreading the word about its release, I’ve worked in the industry for more than 20 years and would love to help you reach and inspire the broadest possible audience. Spreading the love, the hope and the healing is important and much-needed in our world.

  23. John Schlong says:

    Get well soon – we all miss you over here at the Legion. God bless you!

    Nicola Keep the positive

  28. jenn burtenshaw says:

    As i have been following your posts on your blog it shows just how strong of a woman you are and how positive you stay though such a tough time in your life…it is great to hear that you are doing better and look forward to you coming back to do the forecast on chch…my boyfriend and i always looked forward to see you on the news just to see what jacket you would be wearing every day lol we couldn’t believe just how many you had:) you have inspired me to never give up and stay positive through life and i thank you for that.

  29. Debbie says:

    You look amazing! So glad to hear you are winning this battle!
    Keep up the posutive thoughts and prayers you will soon be C-free!!!
    I want to mention the maple syrup baking soda cure. I don’t know if you have heard of it. It creates a high oxygen content in your body. The cancer feeds off the sugar in the maple syrup and the baking soda is the oxygen and the cancer cells die. A friend of mine was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in January. She took the maple syruo cure along with chemo and her tumour is gone!!! Please take this simple remedy it will kick that tumour to the curb for good!!!


  30. Dayna says:

    It is amazing what we do take for granted or the things we fear, which now seem so extremely petty. I thank you for being brave, for yourself and for so many others. I thank you for shedding light on all of this. You go girl!! Kick C’s ass!!!

  31. Rob Lis says:

    We miss you very much on CHCH. All the best for a quick recovery.

  32. Bart Boughner says:

    Simply Amazing , courage and a lovable Lady…….Thank you for you natural light and spirit you have shared with us…….Your light will shine forever…Take Care and Thank you!

  36. Donnacowan says:

    I hope you are feeling much better. We miss you on chch news everything we’ll be ok with you

  37. Kylie says:

    Nicola, this brought tears to my eyes. You took the thoughts out of my mind and the feelings out of my heart and put them on paper on a way that I couldn’t have done. I can absolutely relate to every word. Only someone who has faced the adversity we are going through can truly understand. I have faced my biggest fears and demons and I feel stronger than ever! It’s all because of this journey (a journey one would never ask to be a part of) that I have learned so much, and it HAS been a gift in so many ways. I’ve learned so much about myself & about life. I have breast cancer and have been under-going chemo as well and although it has been a struggle, there is a lot of light around me. You are such an inspiration to me and to others. Thank you for writing this and keep fighting! ❤❤❤ xo

    • Nicola Jones says:

      Never doubt that you have everything you need to heal. Listen to your intuition and support your body. Eat organic raw vegetables daily, think loving thoughts about yourself and the world and smile as much as you can. There are so many tricks to sustain you through this- I am sure you have found a few. Chugging coconut water during chemo saved me from exhaustion when I was so weak and fed up. I KNOW you can do this. Hugs.

      • Kylie says:

        Thank you Nicola. I continue to read your blog & FB posts and truly admire your strength and positive spirit. I am rooting for you and I believe we will both make it through this with flying colours.

  38. anna says:

    Hi Nicola
    prayers are with you always I hope you get better soon. miss seeing you on CHCH.

  39. Rhonda says:

    Truly you really know how to look at life one day at time…Not letting the bad news bring you down…Though you kept going with a positive outlook, and now sharing with others…Good for you Nicola as hard as it might be to open up , and let those around know some really private things it truly help other going threw the same thing who might be afraid…There isn’t any book to guide you threw the step on how to take this life challenge on but you are truly an inspiration to others,,,so thank you for taking the time out of your life to share with us…We are praying that you fully recover from this as you are a blessing to others…RHONDA

  40. John says:

    I just lost a great friend to this dreaded disease and it’s so uplifting and inspirational to see a positive outcome! Continue to heal and get well and get yourself back on the TV. We miss you!

  42. Rob says:

    stay strong and welcome to the survivors club. cancer sucks, just kick it’s ass..go ahead.. do it. If I can do it, so can you

  43. Sharon Houle says:

    You have been missed in the mornings and now I know why ! I too am a cancer survivor , it was 4 yrs ago that I found out I had the Big C at first I was angry scared and confused . I asked myself how could it happen to why did it happen to me .One day after all the tests ,biopsy, surgery and yes being told will need Chemo and radiation and Herseptin treatments I said wow then holy smokes I realized Why not me this has happened to me for a reason and during my journey I realized it was because there were many more people worse off then me and I needed to be there to help them through this same difficult . I am now 3 yrs cancer free I am still helping others and I am soso happy at the person I have become the strength I have and the blessing I give and receive . Nicola continue to be strong and positive and you will see many things in new and brighter ways hugs to you and everyone around you .

  44. Arlene Burch says:

    Out of all the CH news people you are the best and can’t wait to see your smiling face back on the t.v.
    Take care and all the best on your road to recovery.
    Arlene Burch

  45. Marni says:

    Hi Nicola: How wonderful it is to hear how you are doing… And how wonderful that you have such positive news. Healing, like life itself is never a defined pathway from A to B to C… It is rarely linear, but more frequently more wandering, a kind of ‘one step forward, two steps backwards” thing. Your spirit shines through, whether in your post or when you are on the air. We continue to hold you in the light, and look forward to seeing you again on CHCH. You are surrounded by prayer, light and love,.

  46. Debbi Matthews says:

    Hi Nicola…. You are truly an inspiration to all !!
    I am also taking that journey with the Big C but after reading your blog I am feeling stronger and more positive than ever!! Thankyou for sharing your story and know that you are in my prayers. Sending hugs and positive energy for your recovery !

  47. Jim says:

    Hoped you were doing well after the last post, glad to see you are making strides to being healthy again.
    Hang in there Nicola you have many pulling for you.

  48. Chris says:

    You look fantastic. Miss you on CHCH, hurry back. Continue your successful fight knowing there are thousands giving you prayers of support.
