That is what many of my friends, fans and followers have been asking and until now I have been quiet. Quiet because I believe that thought creates reality and I did not want a million TV viewers or a flock of twitter followers thinking of me as sick. I did not want to place sadness in your mind or light a match to fear. It has been months and many still message me, ask about me and tell me they miss me. How beautiful you are to keep a space for me in your hearts. Here is what I know. On February 14 after months of discomfort the very skilled team at St Josephs Hospital removed my uterus in order to rid me of a very large fibroid. The recovery was tough but every day I grew stronger and felt better. Weeks later the pathology report came in and that’s when I had to face some life altering news. The fibroid was a rare aggressive cancer and it could spread. Of course I was afraid and heartbroken. I never thought this would be my story. I wanted to be a healer not broken. But here I was staring down scary words and feeling hunted by something I can not see. I won’t go through all the moments of panic or fears I allowed to plague my mind- you can imagine I’m sure. I dedicated myself this past month to every healing practice modality and food that would nourish my body and lift my spirit. I know God loves me because everything I needed was carefully placed in my path…I just followed the breadcrumbs and soaked in the kindness and love that flowed to me. Every day I have placed myself in the hands of God and asked to be filled with divine love. And so I was. Today as I lay in the Jurivinski awaiting a CT scan to determine why my tummy is swelling and causing me pain I am prompted to break my silence and reach out to you- my next Healers. It is time for me to ask you for light . Every day when I was on CHCH ‘a Morning Live I would drive to work at 4am in the dark and bless all of you. I truly love each of you more than I can express. Every show I asked God to let the light shine through me and lift you up. It was never about the forecast or being on TV, it was always about bringing the light. I held love in my heart for you through -40 and on my most tired days because I wanted so much to lift you and make you feel happy. I still do. We are all connected. When you suffer I suffer , when I  faulter you do and when  one of us is healed we all feel the healing. We are amidst a great shift, life is pulling at us demanding we wake up or we will suffer. Let’s hold hands and do it together. As I write this on my iPhone from a hospital bed I am aware of both the beauty and urgency of this experience. I don’t plan on dying right now- I choose to live and now I ask for your help. We are going to start a Love Revolution. Once you read this would you please immediately share it and then set a daily reminder in your phone or calendar. Every day see me wrapped in Gods Divine Love and fully healed and then ask for the same love for yourself knowing that you are worthy – Remembering you already have my love . This is our birthright and we must act from love now and always. Don’t learn the hard way like me. I always gave my love away and never felt worthy to receive it. Now I know I must in order to heal myself and all of us. Please don’t be sad for me just know that this experience I am in is just a messenger- to us all. Make my lesson matter – share this, send love and know that all is well. blessings always – I love you. Nicola

      Hi Nicola, I have been wondering where you were, we have missed you on the show. I think you are truly one of the best at CHCH.
      It’s seems you have a fight on your hands, I love how you are staying positive that’s awesome.. But I must be truthful and say that it saddens me to see you are going through this. So like so many other, you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
      Stay strong and stay positive you can win.. .
      On a side note , you and my daughter Hollie went to Parkdale school together , it’s a small world.
      It’s also a world of caring people and for those of us that have enjoyed on CHCH ,we share our strength .
      Best regards

      Reading this was like reading my life for the past two years. Same pain, same soul-searching, same fears and the same cancer. With the immense love of my family and friends, as well as the expertise of the oncologists, doctors and nurses at the Juravinski Cancer Centre, I am now able to continue my healing. My thoughts and love are with you Nicola. Please stay strong and positive.

          • Ray Cornell says:

            Good Morning

            Have missed you on CH in the morning. Am looking forward to having you back on CH in the future. One spot you always did was with animals from one of the HS in the area; seeing a number of these made me realize what was missing in my life-a dog-his name is Bucky, a rescue dog, and he has you to thank for opening me up to adopting him. He has been given a second chance, and you are going to have one too!
            Proverbs 3, verses 5 and 6 says “Trust in the Lord with all of your heart,and do not rely on your own insight, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths”.
            I do not just believe this, I have seen it demonstrated in my life, and you will see it in yours too!
            You are going to get well, you are going to get back to work, but take your time because you have all of the time in the world.


    • Maryann says:

      Nicola you are not alone, you have the Great Physician by your side. My prayers are with you

I will think of you daily as healing, not suffering, as winning, not battling & as vivacious, not gasping. I do hope you will share updates when inspired as it is your updates that will rejuvenate the energy!
      Be well & fierce!!

    Dear Nicola,
    Beautiful letter. My hubby has an aggressive form of brain cancer and he was given 6 months to a year to live over a year and a half ago. We’ve been through a lot.

  18. Josie Maljar says:

    Dearest Nicola, I remember you fondly from Alpha at St. Gabriel’s in Burlington. You would show up with a beautiful dog that I believe was being prepped as a companion for the visually impaired. I admired you from a distance. My cousin April posted this on Facebook and I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to read your eloquently written thoughts. I relate so well with the thoughts of – hey, this wasn’t my plan! I was supposed to do this, and be here, and see that and so on and so on. I’ve heard that God chuckles when we make plans. I believe He does, because His are so much better! For myself, I’ve been forced to reevaluate and truly appreciate what is important in my life and it definitely has nothing to do with money, stuff or prestige! I will keep you in my prayers and daily rosary. Nicola, you will be an even more loving and empathetic, beautiful woman, if that is even possible…gathering from what I’ve seen and heard! God bless you and Mother Mary wrap Her loving arms around you to comfort you through this trial. You will be fine….because, Nicola, you “get it”. With affection, Josie

  19. I will carry your heart in my heart…and I can do ANYTHING for you…please let me know.

    • Darlene says:

      You are a beautiful strong young woman,mother and wife ,I believe with all the prayers and love from your CH family and viewers you will win this battle. Your name will be spoken by many in our prayers and God will answer as He can see that your love for Him is real In my thoughts and prayers

  20. Mark says:

    We don’t know each other but I’ve been a fan since Morning Live was in its infancy, so I feel like I know you. In the last year I’ve lost a half dozen friends to Cancer and I’ll share with you the same thing I told them: I wish cancer was a person so I could take it out to the alley and revoke it’s breathing privileges. lol Just a little levity because laughter is the best medicine. :-)
    I’m not a religious man Nicola, but I do support anything that allows another person to get thru their day. Surround yourself in anything and everything it takes for you to maintain the fantastic headspace that you are in. Fight hard and I will keep you in my thoughts and hope for a quick and painless victory for you!

  21. Dawn Nichol says:

    Nicola love and blessings to you….

  66. Sarah says:

    Sending warm thoughts to you. Stay positive, it’s the best medicine. I will be keeping you in my prayers.

  67. Jim Garnett says:

    Nicola, I was wondering where you had been! I’m sorry to hear about your medical problems. Since leaving CHCH in 2011 I’ve sat opposite two doctors who have stated the conversations ‘I have some bad news for you…’ One illness there is no cure for, the other there is some hope. An offshoot of the first illness is I’ve had part of my right foot amputated and it seems like I’m due for another amputation fairly soon. I live in the UK at the moment while I get to grips with my own issues and some other family problems – my mother needs pretty much constant care as she has dementia so that’s my life when I’m not sleeping or working! I miss the newsroom terribly… i used to work mostly weekends and would be in fits of laughter watching TNag trying to make sure she was assigned the ‘lead’ story and even bigger fits of laughter as Lisa Knap would relate stories from her teaching life. Never mind missing Selena, Steve and the rest of the crew. Drop me a line if there’s anything I can do. Love Jim

  68. Aimee says:

    You will be healthy..invision it…know it and beieve it.
    Positive energy your way :))

  69. Midge says:

    Oh Nicola- I am shocked by your sad news. I’m sorry to hear this. For some reason I know you ‘got this’. Stay strong.
    Sending you positive enery and a huge hug.

  70. Aldengirl says:

    Nicola, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Let us carry the fear and focus on yourself and your family, ask for help as you need and you will find yourself shoulder to shoulder with people who love you. A

  71. Maureen says:

    Going to Palm Sunday mass today, will be praying and sending positive thoughts your way.
    I see your battle, just know we are with you! You’ ve got this Nicola!

  72. Laurie Johnston says:

    Godspeed Nicola. I spend 5:30 to 7:15am every Monday to Friday watching CHCH. The most joy is your laughter and smile. Its just not the same without you. My husband and I miss you and our prayers are with you and your family. You are loved by many and never alone.

  73. Donna Spettigue says:

    I was deeply touched reading your words and that you chose to share this journey with your fans. Will be thinking of you and sending you positive thoughts. I have found that the universe has a plan for all of us and what ever place we find ourselves it was meant to be. The reason may not be clear at the time but does become clear. Your decision to share your journey was meant to be and asking us all to wrap you in our hearts and keep you within that positive light is the hardest request but also the easiest. You are not alone on this journey. Wishing you peace and love

  74. Sara says:

    Nicola, as someone who also had cancer, I understand some of your fears. You are in my prayers brave lady.

  75. donna stampone says:

    My heart, thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I have the pleasure of teaching your son and your positive attitude and live for life shines through him. Four years ago I was diagnosed with cancer for the second time, prayer and the support if family, friends and the community gave me so much strength and positive energy to get through this tough time. Bug hugs

  76. Sally says:

    Nicola, I wondered where you were. I am truly sorry to hear of your news. Know that you are in good hands at the juravinski hospital and clinic. I too have been on the roller coaster of cancer for 5 years. I am not cured but I am in a good place right now, living life as best I can and loving each day. I truly believe I am still here because of my positive attitude, many prayers and the love and support of my family and friends…..and of course my wonderful oncologist and her nurse. Stay strong and be positive….you will be challenged and face many ups and downs. Be thankful for each small feat and thank God every morning that you wake up. I wish you a miracle to get through this but mostly I wish you many good days among your journey to beat this horrible disease. One day at a time Nicola, one day at a time.

  77. Phyllis says:

    Hi Nicola: My prayers and thoughts are with you. Wishing you a speedy recovery, Take care of yourself. Yes we do miss you on CHCh morning live. Take care my love goes out to you.

  79. Lynda Tarves says:

    NICOLA I send special hugs love and prayers your way It is very upsetting when we are always the one protecting and nurturing others to find out that we have to start taking care of ourselves. I became very sick at the end of last year not near as sick as you are and was off work for weeks. By the grace of God I feel much better bit I am still taking tests to find out things that are wrong. He truly helps to get through each day. You will be on my prayer list and may God bless you and your family and help you get through this. I believe in miracles Lynda

    Nicola…may God Bless you with his love! Keeping you in my daily prayers!

  83. Kathy Downey says:

    Today in my short “Jesus Calling” devotional, I was encouraged to trust Him. And that is always a choice. So I pray, dear Father, that Nicola will stay on the path of Life with You, that she will enjoy your presence and that she wii always choose to trust you in spite of and in the centre of her circumstances! Psalm 31:14
    I will look forward to seeing you again with Annette and Lorie and Leslie and that crazy Bob of course!

  84. Michelle says:

    You are in my thoughts and prayers but you are a wonderful positive energy that can beat anything. The morning is not the same without you and I can’t wait to see your wonderful smile and energy helping me start my day. Good luck on your journey and positive thoughts are coming your way.

  85. Vikki says:

  111. Michelle says:

    Nicola, reading your beautiful letter, this timeless poem came to me. My grandmother used to sing it to me as a child and my dear Aunt painted it onto a plaque that was hung in her room. It got me through her passing, and my fathers, mothers, and every struggle that life brings. I want to pass it on to you so that you know that the best is yet to be. You have my love and support and will be in my thoughts.

    THE BEST IS YET TO BE – Unknown
    The best is never over, the best is never gone,
    There’s always something lovely, to keep you struggling on.
    There’s always compensations, for every cross you bear,
    A secret consolation, is hidden somewhere.
    Ends are new beginnings, as one day you will see,
    The best is never over, the best is yet to be.

  112. Everyone in our family are sending you their good wishes, good thoughts & all our prayers to you. You are a wonderful lady & you have god on your side to help you get though all the struggles you will have to go though. As I have lost many family members with this rotten illness I know what you are going though. I know you are a strong lady & will always keep fighting. We miss very much & look forward to seeing you soon all my prayers are with you to get though this battle .Brenda

  113. Llyana says:

    Nicola, I was wondering what had happened to you as well. I guessed that I had missed the moment when they announced that you had taken another job somewhere else…that’s what I assumed. I was very shocked to hear what you are truly going through… heart and as much positivity as I can muster are with you. I just want you to know that you were a much loved part of the Morning Live crew and I hope that you not only kick this cancer in the ass, but that you come back and share your light with all of us. Please keep staying strong and thinking positive….. “gotta kick at the darkness til it bleeds daylight”. Much love, Llyana

  125. Dannielle says:

    Sometimes tragedy strikes us at the worst moments, I know sadness and hurt and the constant question ” why me” we all go through life thinking nothing will happen to us, and yet when it happens we are surprised and angry, I ask myself everyday why me? And all I can think is that God chooses those to go through life changing ordeals because he has a higher purpose for us, maybe yours will be to teach others about your pain and how we as a whole can find ways to prevent or cure, I wish you speedy recovery and a life of cancer free so that you can continue on the path you were taking when God chose you for this “life pause” and like everyone else get well fast so you can continue you come into our lives every morning just as it should be. :)

  126. Susan C. says:

    I enjoyed listening to your soft and soothing voice punctuated with a lovely smile. You are absolutely correct to say that you lifted my spirits. There is nothing that I can say that you probably haven’t already thought yourself except that I will think of you as you recover and will look forward to the morning when you will be back smiling. Cheer up, best days are yet to come!!! It’s too bad that you have to go through this unpleasantness so young. LOL.

  150. Midge says:

    Nicola: Our God is a faithful God, He not only hears our prayers, but knows what we need before it even crosses our thoughts. We don’t know why folks get sick and die, but we do know that He is in control. Look up to Him, read His holy word, His light will shine upon you and bless you. Praying you will have the grace to stay strong and be upheld by Him. God Bless. With my love for you.

  151. Patricia says:

    Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle.

    The world you desired can be won. It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.
    Through God all things are possible. May his love and grace give you strength to reflect all the beauty and light your soul has to share.

  152. Louise says:

    Our dearest Nicola,
    Feel the love of all who love you…even the fans like me who have never met you. We have tweeted each other a few times along with Annette. I tweeted you a month ago asking where you have been…no reply. I tweeted Annette asking the same…with no reply. Now I understand why. I thank you for opening up to us. Now we know and send all of the love and prayers that you could ever imagine. I will pray daily for your recovery until you come back on here and tell us that you are well.

    Nicola my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I know just how much this changes your life. I had a hysterectomy in July 2012 which then lead to the discovery of a tumor in my lung. Life changes when you get the final word that you have cancer. I ended up having 2/3″s of my lung removed. Life changes but it makes you even stronger. It is a fight but one that we win. You are very strong and young so I have every confidence that you will beat this awful thing we call cancer. Best of luck.

  167. Bert says:

God is with you every step of this journey. Bless you Nicola.

  194. Donna says:


    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I have had the pleasure of teaching your son and your strength and love for life comes through in him. I battled cancer for the second time four years ago and the positive energy of family, friends and the community gave me the strength to beat this disease.. Just as I was going double mystectomy, surgery, the school I teach at had a prayer service, the feeling I had coming out of that surgery was undescribable. The strength and comfort of knowing people are there to support and love you was overwhelming. God bless you Nicola . I know this is a scary time but your positive attitude will allow you to get through this

  195. Joanne says:

    Hello Nicola

    My dear father is also in a hospital bed at Juravinski right now battling pancreatic cancer. I pray all the time for him, knowing there’s no cure for him now but wishing him no pain and the chance to enjoy his family right til the end.

  200. Lynne C says:

    Hi Nicola: Strength to you at this challenging time. 30 years ago, when I was a young mother, with 3 kids under age 4, my husband, age 25, was diagnosed with cancer. It was a bleak time. I want you to know that this journey will teach you. It will define for you what is precious in life. And it will set you free in ways you cannot yet imagine. And my husband? He is beside me, well and cancer free, (age 55), playing with our grandchildren. Believe you can, and you will.

  201. Chrystal Lemery says:

    Nicola ~ First and foremost, Thank you. Thank you for sharing, inspiring and teaching. My hope for you is that your body stay strong and that you keep your mind and soul at peace. Much Love <3

    Keep your attitude positive.
    Take care.

  215. Robb Harris says:

    Nicola; As i read your story i can’t help but think back to when my son Jackson was diagnosed with brain cancer at the age of 3. He, like yourself had and has been battling ever since, and like you imply, love and family are as important as any medical procedure. When Jackson was spotlighted as a Mac kid in 2012 I was nervous, scared and torn, torn that Jackson would be looked at as well different. Instead we were surrounded by love and prayers. So, Nicola your already on the right path, you have an entire city rallying behind you and your family. You take care of yourself and leave the love and prayers to us, your very extended but caring family.

  216. Tracy Trebych says:

I have had mixed emotions and not sure how to deal
    Reading this has helped. It has lifted my spirits a bjt and helped remind me that there is a plan for me. I pray daily with answers and hope. Knowing what you are struggling with and that you are pulling through has now shown me that I too can do it. With the love and help from others abd GOD.
    God bless you Nicola.

  227. April Sweet says:

    Dear Nicola,
    I’ve only ever seen you on CHCH, but I read your post and just had to reply. I lost an aunt to cancer when I was just a young girl, a friend when I was in my 30′s and found out a couple years ago that my mom has fibroids as far as I know they’re not cancerous and I pray they never will be. You are a strong and amazing woman, I hope that I can be as strong and positive as you if it ever happens to me. I send my prayers to you and your family in this trying time and hope for a speedy and complete recovery.
    Best Wishes, April.

  228. Arlene says:

    I am stunned to hear about your illness. I am sending you love, prayers, and healing white light.

  229. Terri Clark says:

    Nicola, your bright smile is definitely missed! Years ago I went through that same operation. My fibroid cyst was the size of a grapefruit! I will be praying for you to get through it everything! Your healthy attitude and being fit, will definitely help you! Keep your chin up! Sincerely, Terr Clark.

  230. Catherine Jones says:

    Hi love,
    This is Catherine your ex neighbor from Manhattan Condo building.
    I am so thankful Carolyn Cowan for letting me know about you.
    I am praying right now the anointing of Jesus as your highest priest and healer guard your emotions, mind and body. May He appear to your life in great measure. We agree with you that you are identifying with thoughts of lost or discouragement. We surround you with Father Gods Love. No weapon can prosper on this situation cause you have the mind of more than an overcomer. There is Grace in every step you takea and signs and wonders are your lifestyle.
    Lord be kindness and tenderness to Nicola. Lead her to rest in your green pastures. This place where only you and your sons and daughters can take her. Love you Nicola!

    • Catherine Jones says:

      Typo: We agree with you that you are NOT identifying with thoughts of lost or discouragement.

      • Nicola Jones says:

        So good to hear from you, please keep praying for me. I miss you both xo Nicola

        • Catherine Jones says:

          Hi love,
          You came to mind today Sunday Sep 28. Praying for your mind and body to know the Original Nature of God in you, to be loved, to be healed, to be committed, a person of covenant and vibrant full of Life and Light. None one can fulfill healing except for Christ The Son who did it and brought back to us restoration, renewal, reconciliation to go back to the beginning of our Nature, wholeness. May we all experience this Divine nature.

          This morning my Meditation was on Romans Chapter 5….
          I concluded:
          The certainty of God, the Immutability of God is so solid that anything that is confronted by his Immutability has not other choice but to change and become like Him. We can’t encounter God and remain the same. His nature does not share His GLORY with another (Hebrew= inferior missing the mark). He only relates to Christ in us (Galatians 2:20).

          May you find the fullness of healing in the healer of your mind, emotions, will and body. Much love,
          Your sister,

    • Nicola Jones says:

      Thank you so much- It was such a lovely moment when I saw this message from you. YOU are such a light YOU are a powerful servant and thank you for praying over me. xo Blessings to you and Ray : )

  231. Leanne Z says:

    Nicola, thank you for your strength and love. You are in our family’s thoughts and prayers right now and my daily intention is visualizing health and love for you. Xo

  232. Ian Pryde says:

    Dear Nicolas,
    Shock and sadness. We kept asking where you were. The power of positive is amazing and with all the positive thought and energy coming your way, you will beat this. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Miss you. Come back soon.

  233. Phil W. says:

    First thank you for the courage and love you sent in writing your soul searching tribute to life. I have read it over again and again and it brought silence and peace to me and reflection of friends, lovers and family who have also shared your brief time away from us. But you will be back, I am certain, this is your time to pray, rebuild and grow strong. Like so so many other people that I know and now I am specifically thinking of my friend Kathy in Michigan, you are so right when you underline the importance of reaching out for support. Her story is paralleled to yours and I know that she is just an unbelievable inspiration to those around her: the last time I visited her. She was 24/7 with beautiful , loving people circleling her with their spiritual love and joy. She is a fighter and I am convinced that love endures, support always wins and people inspire her to love life.
    To me that is the magic. So, yes yes yes. I am putting you at the top of my list for daily prayers and brave thoughts. Please stay in touch somewhere so we can all get on the Nicola Lovetrain! Thanks for you and your brave and very touching and important update.
    Phil W.

  237. Susan C. says:

    Sweet Dear Nicola: You have so many people, now that they know, spreading the love of God into your heart and soul. Cancer is an ugly thing, it puts the fear of God into all of us, but when you are a friend of God’s, you need not fear. It’s a win win situation. You stay here and deal with your health issues, or you get the salvation that you were promised at birth. No losses here, just beauty and love spreading into you from every corner of the earth. People you don’t know, people from other countries that see Hamilton news, all are sending vibes that you will beat this disease that has afflicted you at a very young age. Truly miracles do happen. We’ve had one recently in our lives, so they do in fact exist. Praying for you, never give up hope, and put your very soul into the hands of God. He will not forsake you! Blessings to you and those you love.

  238. Patricia says:

    God please Bless and watch over and protect Nicola and her family. Keep them safe. Please heal Nicola. Make her well. Amen.

Your gentle, beautiful spirit enriches everyone who knows you – thank you…thank you.

  258. Julie says:

    Dear Nicole,

    We’ve never met now have a heard of you before today but my heart goes out to you for what you are going through. Your story showed up in my new feed this morning and I was curious.

    There are many things that will help you heal and be well again – I’m not telling you anything new. My heart goes out to you for your courage and your call for support. You have been heard. What I will tell you is that there are natural protocols that can aid in saving your life. I know some and have helped many live or live longer when the prognosis was otherwise. It’s not any one thing – there is no magic cure other, but some are pretty easy. Like know ing that coanchor thrives in an acid and anaerobic environment. Change those 2 factors – fast to stop the growth and that is simple. Our bodies are wired to heal if it has what it needs – look to super charging your immune system more so than simple V&M – look to cancer-inhibitting phytonutrients and cell-to-cell communicators – glyconutrients. these are some of your keys …plus releasing your feminine metaphysical wounds – we both know those are there. May peace be with you… Blessings, Julie

  259. Jeff Hincks says:

    Nicola, thanks so much for letting you CHCH viewers know what has happened to you,I know we will all be praying for you & your family, I can let my son know why he doesn’t see you, you and Matt & Bob are his favourites, God Bless

  262. Wendy says:

    Hi Nicola,

    I’m sending my prayers and positive thoughts out to you. Please make sure to always concentrate on being healthy. There is no battle or fight of cancer. Get that last line out of your head – forever. BEING HEALTHY, FEELING GOOD, GETTING BETTER EACH DAY. That should be your only vocabulary, thoughts and energy, no matter what. Bring positive people around you. You can do this. Cells regenerate. Your cells regenerate healthy! You ARE Healthy! Believe and believe it’s happening in present tense. Meditate, read funny things, watch tv shows that make you laugh, be around positive people. When your mind wants to get into a negative frame of mind. Do any of the above or things that you know that help you, to get back to your positive state. Again, you can and are doing this.

    Hugs from Toronto (grew up in Hamilton and am back often)


  263. Samantha says:

    You are an amazing woman full of courage, you have this in hand.

    Best wishes Nicola! Love and Hugs to you!

  282. Hello Nicola:
    We met twice on Morning Live, the most recent was for my feature film, “Trade of Innocents” – I am mentioning that so you can put a face to the name. No warm fuzzy new age power thoughts or politically correct jargon – I believe in God who answers prayer so I have prayed for you to be well and receive that healing in Jesus’ Name. God wants you well. There’s more for you to do. More lives for you to touch. There’s a great series of video testimonials and teaching about healing for free at – look for healing testimonies on the left of screen… the information is free, the teachings are free and so is your healing Nicola. See you back on CH and when I am a guest talking about my next movie. Then you can share personally your testimony of receiving healing… I am looking forward to it.

    Nicola, we all pray or you. We know that you will be back stronger. You are the only one who could bring sunshine to our homes.

  284. Linda says:

    My Dear Nicola: We have been wondering where you have been and now we all know you have been busy being ill. You letter to all of us takes care of the wondering and now we will pray for you and keep you in our thoughts. I have had cancer for three and a half years, been through surgery, then two years later a course of chemo and radiation as that cancer had reared it’s ugly head once again. I found you must keep a positive attitude, which you seem to have and speak freely of your health issues. A sense of humor should not be given up and please, please keeps yours. Prayers can work miracles and I strongly believe that all prayers are gratefully accepted. Like you, my surgery was at St. Joseph’s in Hamilton and treatments at Jarivinski Cancer Center. I thank God , doctors, nurses, staff and both hospitals for keeping me on this earth. You are in a fine place at Jarivinski with top notch doctors, nurses and technology. May God Bless and keep you. Our prayers are with you. Thank you for letting your TV viewers be informed of your illness. That is another step towards a positive way of thinking. and letting that demon cancer know that you are one step ahead of him. Get well and remember, you have a large amount of people in Ontario who have grown to enjoy and now miss you. We are all pulling for you <3

    Hi Nicola,

    I am so sorry you are going through this rough time in your life. I miss seeing you on CH every morning and I wish you a speedy recovery and that you come through this as a very stronger and a very positive person. Being Positive is the Key to health and happiness. Below are a couple of sayings I put together for you in hopes that it will make you smile and give you the confidence you need.


    I said a prayer for you today and I know God must have heard
    I felt the answer in my heart although he spoke no word!
    I didn’t ask for wealth or fame (I knew you wouldn’t mind)
    I asked Him for treasures of a far more lasting kind!
    I asked that He’d be near you at the start of each new day
    To grant you health and blessings and friends to share your way!
    I asked for happiness for you in all things great and small
    But it was for His loving care that I prayed for most of all.


    You never walk alone my friend
    Though you may think you do,
    For in your sorrow and despair
    God always walks with you.
    There is no hour, no passing day
    He is not by your side,
    And though unseen he still is there
    To be your friend and guide.
    Whenever you think you walk alone
    Reach out and you will find,
    The hand of God to show the way
    And bring you peace of mind.


    Don’t quit when the tide is lowest,
    For it’s just about to turn;
    Don’t quit over doubts and questions,
    For there’s something you may learn.

    Don’t quit when the night is darkest,
    For it’s just awhile ‘til dawn;
    Don’t quit when you’ve run the farthest,
    For the race is almost won.

    Don’t quit when the hill is steepest,
    For your goal is almost nigh;
    Don’t quit, for you’re not a failure
    Until you fail to try.


    Hope is like a star so bright;
    It’s there on sunny days,
    Yet shines brightest
    Through the darkest night.

    Hope will always be
    Our greatest treasure
    With a value
    That’s beyond measure.

    For hope is the key
    To finding our dreams,
    The wind beneath our wings
    No matter how long
    The flight ahead seems.

    It’s the spark in our heart
    That’s ever ablaze,
    And the bit of magic
    That helps us get
    Through the days.

    I’m sending this
    Star of hope to you.

    It will ever
    Sparkle bright,
    To keep the hope
    Alive in your heart
    Day and night.

    Should you ever
    Get discouraged
    The star of hope
    Will give you courage.

    May God bless you with his healing powers. Your blog was beautifully written and I know a lot of work went into your blog. You are in my Prayers daily and I look forward to seeing you back on CH in the near future. I am here should you wish to talk or if you need a shoulder to lean on. HUGS!!! PRAYERS!!! ALWAYS BE POSITIVE!!!

    Take care,
    Shawn Craig Price

    Hi Nicola. I am so sorry to hear about your struggles but at the same time am blessed by your attitude and faith. My niece has been battling breast cancer and has been fighting with faith and God at the forefront. She has blessed many people through her blog and I am posting the link to her blog In The Still Moments. It might be of interest to you. I will lift you up to the Lord in prayer and continue to pray for healing. Love in Christ. http:/

  294. Linda Webb says:

    Nikki I was wondering were you have been and I will pray for your recovery. I look forward to your getting well and returning to your Family and your Work family. I will ask Colleen Irish to also pray for you as I am sure she will be shocked too. We love you and will bring you good thoughts . Linda Webb and family.

  295. Lois says:

  300. Brian says:

    Nicola, You are a major part of Our Family and morning routine. We have missed you from day one. Sorry, nothing personal to the lovely people who are trying to fill your shoes. We have been wondering why you left and now that we know we are both wishing we didn’t.
    Please, look up ” Adam, The Dream Healer”.
    Many years ago my Father was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and was sent home by “modern medicine” to die. He was told about Adam. Through his Spiritual Healing My Father beat that cancer that was supposed to be a death sentence. He unfortunately passed away for a totally unrelated reason but the Doctors say now that he was “miss diagnosed” with cancer because he was completely cancer free at the time of his death.
    Nicola, you are a beautiful person and our prayers and thoughts are with you. You will beat this, stay positive, do not let negative into your life.
    Thank You for your Love and Please feel Ours in return,
    Much Love and Hugs and Prayers,
    Brian and Evelyn Slade

  301. Brendalee Candelori says:

    God Bless you Nicola in your struggle. You asked for it, and now you’ve got it. Prayers from all of us. I believe you are correct, we are all in this together. So I will add you to my prayers and send positive thoughts to you that you heal, and get stronger. Thank you for sharing this with us. We learn from each other, and also learn that we are not alone.

  302. cheryl says:

    Sending many hugs and prayers your way. I know you will be fine. Stay strong. xo

  303. John Scime says:


    This is not normal for me to write to someone I don’t know. My wife an I both wondered if you had left the station as this happens all the time. It’s is with great shock and that I read your story but also admire and appreciate the strength and faith you are displaying which is truly inspirational.

    There are many too many like yourself. I have a very dear friend right now who is in the latter stages of pancreatic cancer. A person who you would wish there were more of in this world and it seems so unfair. Like yourself, he does not let what is going on change his outlook on life. In fact he is an inspiration just as you are and it does have a profound effect on the attitude of those that are around him. He has gone out of his way to tell everyone he knows how much he appreciates their friendship.

    I now, more than ever, believe that we are all placed on this planet and placed into situations for a purpose. Even our pets teach us many lessons if we just listen.

    Our positive thoughts and prayer go out to you. We look forward to see you again when we get up in the morning and get ready for work. Godspeed to you for a full and quick recovery.

    God’s blessing,

    John and Kelley

  304. Sharon L says:

    My husband and I had noticed that you were not on lately and wondered what happened. We are surprised to learn of your diagnosis. You have had such a positive impact on life. Like flowers in a garden, hope grows in a heart. A wish is a promise that tomorrow will be better then today. We’re thinking of you and praying for you.

  305. Colleen says:

    Nicola, Your courage in disclosing your journey and the request for our love and prayers is a testament to your strength. God will carry you through this. Remember the poem ‘Footprints’. It gives us a strong message. You will never be alone because everyday, each hour, there will be someone sending you love, positive energy and prayers. If and when you have some dark times, visualize the masses surrounding you with Our Lord in the middle and see that our love and prayers will always support you. With energy like this, only positive things can happen.

  306. alex sanchez says:

    Nicola you are surrounded not just by close family and friends but also by everyone who watches chch chch is a big part of Hamilton families may god bless and heal you love thoughts and prayers are with you and your family love and harmony god bless you in everything you do and you sure done a lot giving the weather in the worst weather you would still do it with a smile everyday may god bless you

  307. Dorothy says:

    Hi Nicola
    I am Bob Seniors girlfriend. Your chch audio engineer is my Bob. I have walked your path. It’s interesting. I referred to it as a new adventure. Something else to learn about. I also learned to trust my own instincts. Since you know Bob, feel free to contact me via email if you want honest answers and to know what to expect. You have no time for face to face. A yet to meet email bud can be the best one to call out to in the middle of the night. Anytime. I will be here for you.

    • Dorothy says:

      Hey you, it’s me again… Bob Seniors girlfriend…your audio engineers girl friend. Nope I dont feel sorry for you any more than I felt sorry for myself when it hit me. You have to run like a deer with your own instincts. You are the one that drives your recovery or remission or cure. I learned so much when I was faced with this. Chemo…radiation…radical surgery… they tell you the medical advice. There is so much more to these options than what they tell you. Things you need to know. First hand. You need to know, what radiation is all about from a third party to educate yourself. To help you make decisions. You need someone to still be here when 355 others aren’t. I will be here for you. Why? Because so many were there for me. Time to pay it forward … a buzillion times. Why? Because I want to. For now, I’m ok. I made decisions I’m proud of. Radical medical decisions that even surgeons are afraid to offer, yet tell, you made such a brave strong decision. They were proud od me. I am proud of me. I am here with Bob. I am living proof… there are goodnand informed choices to be made. Medically approved and endorsed. No I didn’t go homeopathic. I stayed medical. Im alive. I want to help you stay alive. Reach out to you. Help you through this maze. Know whatvtobexpect from treatments from someone first hand. If you know Rino….Donna…I will be perfectly honest, the stranger to turn to. Why? Because I am alive.

  308. Chris says:

    Hi Nicola.
    I Remember the first day you went on your mission to win this battle. I said to my wife that you must be on a well deserved vacation. That is how quickly you are missed! Our hearts are sending out to you every healing signal possible. We will fight with you every day. The weather hasn’t been the same without you. Be strong.
    Chris and Emily.

  309. Karen Male says:

    Prayers and healing light sent your way. With Gods love we conquer so very much. I was very surprised to hear of your illness but I believe that God will hear your prayers as well as all of ours. Keep strong. You are so brave!

  310. Alice Bespolko says:

    Wow! Nicole big, big news. I missed you in the mornings while I went through my daily exercise, wondering why I hadn’t seen you. Your faith is awesome! Prayers are with you and your family!

  311. Luis says:

    Although I do not personally know you, I have been watching you for a long time. I work in the community and my patients tend to watch CH a lot, and that is how I became a fan. You must stay strong, and I am sure we are all praying for you. I have had the biggest crush on you for the longest time, and I am glad to see that you have so many followers who have you in their prayers. Your words are moving, and I will keep you in my thoughts. Keep fighting the good fight, and you will come out of it a winner. Deepest regards

    Nicola my thoughts and prayers are with you, you can fight this, when we went through Leukemia with our Son we just thought of it as a bump in the road of life, with lots of prayers and support all went well for us as I know it will for you. I miss watching you and Bob joking around but I know you’ll be back so ” be prepared Mr McCowan”. Take comfort in knowing you have a lot of fans cheering for you. Love to you your family and friends and may God keep you warm in his arms as the Doctors do they’re job to bring you to good health.

    But see you soon!!!


  320. Jodi says:

    Dear Nicola,
    My heart is broken having read this news. We have missed your smiling face and sense of humour in the mornings on CH. I know you will stay positive and stong as you battle. It is an uncertain road ahead – I along with many have travelled it. I’m a breast cancer survivor just past my 5 year milestone. I didn’t choose to have cancer – it chose me. It’s a heck of a hard ride to be on. I decided to spread awareness every chance I get. Attitude is as much a part of healing as the surgery and medicines and proceedures. I share my story in as much detail as someone asks. I notice those who are battling and give a little word of encouragement. A simple ‘you look beautiful’ or ‘ I remember sporting that look’ to someone who has lost all their hair. They know that you understand, that you have walked in their shoes. Please Know that I, like many are right beside you every step of the way. We are there to give you strength, energy, root you on and get you through this.

  321. Karen says:

    Healing and health to you Nicola…stay strong and hold on…

  322. joan says:

    Really miss you on chch. Know that you are in our thoughts every day. Just remember God is good and will help you through this!!!

  323. Tom says:

    Thoughts are with you Nicola. We had wondered where you had you gotten to. Just hoping you were filming more episodes of Take It Outside. Best of luck in everything. Stay positive. They are doing amazing work at Juravinski – I know b/c they’ve kept my father going strong for years now.

  324. Constance says:

    I know I wondered where you had gone. I watch CHCH with my daughter in the morning and we have missed your weather reports. Please stay strong and take care of yourself. You are missed greatly and I hope you get back on your feet soon. Take care!

  325. Sam Black says:

    Sending you light and love. You are never alone. Xoxo

  326. Donna Dixon says:

    Nicola.. what a powerful story you have shared with so many. I am so very sorry for what you are going through. Love and strength, family and friends and all of our prayers will help you get through this. You are strong and you can fight this, I am sending you my strength, prayer’s and love that everyone has given to me over the last few years… and it helped me to be where I am today. So I am handing it over to you. Stay strong, positive…and know we are all here right beside you every step of the way. You will win this!! thinking of you.. I will keep watch for updates and u keep holding onto all the love and prayers everyone is sending to you. Take care
    Love and tons of strength and prayers…You will win this… you are strong…!!

  327. Paul says:

    Hi Nicola, wishing you all the best in your fight. Jesse still speaks if Christian and wonders how he is. If there is anything I can do for you , please let me know , and I mean it!! Take care and all the best wishes from Jesse and me.

  328. Dale says:

    We missed you & wish you the strength to continue to fight the fight! Our son recently also had to do battle with this dreaded disease & we know first hand how important staying positive can be. Surround yourself with people who care & with people who want to take care of you. You are in our thoughts & prayers.

  329. paul smith says:

    get better soon nicola xo

  330. Bette ann says:

    I don’t know you Nicole, I have never seen or heard your show. Although I am Canadian, I live away in another country and state . I do however believe that you are so right in keeping a collective positive outpouring of thought to strengthen your fight against this wicked angry disease . Bad things can only diminish when faced with more good than bad to feed it. Keep positive, this time you will win!

  331. Thomas O'Malley says:

    Hi Nicola,

    I bless you in the healing white light of the Spirit of God.

    “You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you.” Phil. 4:13

    Dwell on: God is your strength, God is my power, God is my assured victory. I will trust in him and he will bring it to pass.


  332. Mandi says:

    Thank you for sharing your story. Know that you are loved, and I will be thinking of you, and sending positive energy to you each and every day. Stay strong and get well!!!

  333. Ken says:

    Mornin’ Nicola. We like so many others miss you each morning on CHCH. We are told to join together/agree together for “stuff” we want/need/desire, so today we agree with you for your complete wellness/you being perfectly whole, in the only name I know to ask for it, that being Jesus. Ken

  334. Nicola Youseman says:

    My dearest fellow warrior. You will see the firs thing we share is our Christian name:
    but sadly we also share the daily journey of fighting our own cancer.
    Please know that I use Facebook as my outlet for letting all my friends and family know my updates health-wise but more importantly I have filled Facebook with messages of FAITH and HUMOUR because that’s what works for me. I believe that fighting this demon is 90% attitude and 10% medicine.
    You will have your own approach, and just know as a fellow warrior I hold you in my daily prayers. Not sure how far down the road you are, and I don’t need to know that.
    You just need to know that I’m here if you wanna contact me, but I am very certain from all the posts that you have your own support network.

    Take care………

    Nicola Youseman
    Fellow cancer warrior

  335. Terri says:

    Nicola, stay strong and positive! I have been thinking of you since you posted your message , and like many others wondered what had happened to you! We miss your morning smile and bantering with Bob!
    I myself have just had a battle with cancer. I was a patient at jurvanski on March 28, when I had my kidney removed due to a malignant tumor. I won’t say I understand what you are going through, as each of our journey with this horrible disease is a personal one. You are in good hands at jurvanski ! I pray and keep you in my thoughts that whatever the next steps are needed for your recovery, that you know so much love is sent your way! God bless you and your family. You are not alone! Take care Nicola!

  336. Jane says:

    Sending you healing thoughts and prayers Nicola. Everyday as I watched morning live, I was hoping that would be the day you would be back and feeling better. I know that day will be very soon, that you will be back, doing what you love and always sending your positivity to everyone. Thank you for so bravely and beautifully sharing your journey with us all.

  337. Dawn says:

    good morning Nicola…….. sending all the positive vibes light and love to you! you have always been such an inspiration and a wonderful personality……with all the love and light surrounding you may you heal quickly and be able to move on to your next chapter of life!!!
    sending big loving hugs

  338. Jeannie says:

    My mornings have not been the same without you. My heart was broken hearing your news. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Know that God is with you in every step of your journey and you are never alone. Take care of yourself, Nicola.

  339. Gwen says:

    Dear Nicola, I cannot express how brave you are and to sit on your hospital bed writing to all of us pouring out your heart. I have watched you on CH back in your starting out days and then again now. I always admired how you had a warm and fun attitude and how you made us feel like “friends and sisters”. I wish you all the Best in your recovery and send Strength and Positive Outlooks to you and your Family. Kindest Regards Nicola and Family

  340. Alex Brown says:

    Nicola, it’s so good to finally know what to ask for when I think of you and your challenges. Thank you for sharing. It’s so hard to accept ‘the reason’ for your frightening situation, but if I can offer a little hope…
    As a mom of five, I’ve spent more than my fair share of time and energy in emergency and waiting rooms. I’ve met a great many docs and specialists. And every one of them who stand out, apart from their peers, as exceptional, resourceful, compassionate, and truly helpful, each conquered their own personal trials, carrying their own unique perspective and understanding to my aid. Every one of them.
    You have a gift – a gift of love and healing to share with so many. But there is something you will gain, some extra edge, that will come from this difficult journey. You have to trust that. And in that growth, you will find yourself in a place you can’t yet imagine.
    I wish you strength and courage as you travel your path. I have no doubt in your ability to win this battle. And it is my fervent wish for you that you can rely on your tremendous sense of humour to get you through the toughest days. You are quite simply, one of the funniest people I have ever had the pleasure to encounter. Laugh Love Live.

  341. Kay says:

    Stay positive Nicola! Good things will happen for you.

  342. Sharon Norton says:

    you are loved Nicola – more than you know. Sending you love from my heart and from the universe. Be well.

  343. Cathy Dawson says:


    Hello I’m Cathy Dawson and I wanted to pass on a few words, Well first off hope your feeling good , this is a journey in Nicola’s story.
    A story of a strong creative woman. You have been in our lives since Morning live was Born on ChCh.
    I see you as a strong woman mentally and physically .
    As you know I’m sure by all the comments emails and Facebook and I imagine tweets are telling you . We are walking this journey with you , we will share your fears your years your happiness and your feelings of concern.
    I enjoy my mornings with Morning live and you definitely brighten up the room when your on. I went through what your going thru about 22 years ago. I was lucky enough to give birth to my son by c-section and the doctor saw the fibroid of my uterus and decided that if I wanted he could do a hysterectomy while I was on the table .
    I was so happy to have him find it than. A few weeks later I learned it was cancerous and I followed dr’s orders to the T. Now 22 years later here I am writing you a get well comment. Nicola you will be in my prayers

  344. Victoria says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. Although I have not had the same experience as you, recently I have opened my heart to God as my source of strength and undying love. My thoughts have been guided to the positive and leaving behind the negative. I have watched you from the time CHCH began the Morning Live show in the days when Cathy Wegner was sharing the host position with Bob, you and Leslie. Loved it then and love it now. Truly miss your very beautiful face, full of light and hope. Please accept my love and my prayers and get well soon.

  345. Janet C says:

    Nicola. I have so missed seeing you on CH every morning. You are one of my very favourites…so beautiful, engaging and with a wicked wit!!! I was shocked and sorry to hear that you’re going through this daunting challenge and will join the chain of people that love you by keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Just remember, God brought you to it; now, he’ll take you through it.

    Stay strong young lady. You are loved.

  353. Dawn says:

    What a powerful story. So uplifting to everyone who reads it. You truly are an angel. You ask for so little, if there were more I could do I would in a instance. Sending you white light and healing. Bless you.

  354. kimberly says:

    So sorry to hear about your absence from Morning Live. If anyone can overcome this you can, you pssess an amazing positive attitude. As you mentioned earlier that hardest part will be reversing the Mother roll. Instead of you taking care of everyone else, its time to let them take care of you. Allow everyone possible to help sometimes its the littlest things that need the most help. You are part of a huge world and lots of helpers waiting. Always will in our prayers and keep up the fghting and positive attitude. xoxoxox

    Nicola …. Very sorry to hear the bad news. My prayers are for you.
    You are in for a wild “Roller Coaster Ride of your life.” You are looking at reality Face On and sometimes it is not a pretty sight. You have plans for a future, in and instant that changes. In a while, everything will come into focus for you. Roll with the punches, get up on your feet and fight back with all your might. Kick Ass. Cancer “CAN” be beaten.
    I personally have beaten one Stage 4 Cancer and presently kicking ass on two more unrelated Cancers.
    I am in the healing process, A Roller Coaster Ride for sure. My prognosis now is fair for the next five years. My plans for the future have been changed again and again. You do get use to it.
    Stay positive, Do not let anyone emit Negative vibes around you. The power of prayer is the best medicine. You will Beat This.
    Your in Our Prayers

I have been thinking about you everyday as I watch the news and was happy to get a tiny update on you a few weeks ago :) I hope that God hugs you in the healing love you ask for! You are an inspiration to everyone and I will continue to keep you in my prayers <3 All the best, Shannon

  394. Tracey Goslin says:

    Hi Nicola,

    I have been saying to my husband (practically every morning) I wonder what happened to that crazy weather lady? We thought possibly promotion. But I was heartbroken to learn of your awful sickness.

    You are such a kind person and a ray of sunshine and we sorely miss your smiling face each morning. You always made us laugh – especially when you licked the cameraman’s icecream LOL.

    I am crying as I type this. You cannot possibly comprehend how much you have given to so many. Making people laugh is a great gift any you have that.

    My warmest best wishes go to you and your family at this very difficult time. I wish you health and will pray for you.

    You huge fans Tracey & Robert Goslin, Niagara Falls. xxx

  395. Ralph says:

    You have all the tools and a great outlook on life. Having recently going to the brink with cancer I can say that a strong support group and a positive attitude can carry you over mountains. Hope to run into you years from now on one of those sunny beaches down south. My prayers are with you.

    Dear Nicola,
    My husband just asked me last week “Where is Nicola” Today I read your article, sent to me by a very dear friend. Nicola, your article brought me to tears. You are much more than a beautiful face and endearing personality we watched everday on CHTV.
    Your article is so inspiring, it moved me beyond words. Your positive thinking and your healthy lifestyle will be so beneficial during your journey to wellness, but it will be the support, love and light from others that will guide you. We are all truly one and I will join you Love Revolution with open arms. As part of my daily meditation and personal yoga practive I will send you a healing each and every day. I love you too Nicola. Stay positive, maintain hope and feel the love that you are so worthy of.

    Hi Nicola, almost four years ago we moved to Ancaster and being in new city I knew no one. I started watching CHCH and knew who you were, and would also see you from time to time in the community, whether shopping at Fortinos or at a indoor play gym with my kids. You had such a warm beautiful presence about you. You made me feel at home and I have never even met you! You are an amazing person and your strength and love of life will get you through this. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Wishing you a quick recovery! xoxoxox

  439. Diane says:

    Hi Nicola,
    Miss your warm and smiling face on MorningLive. Your wish to send out love and positivity was definitely felt! I am sending light and love to you as you recover and strength to get through your health challenges. May love and light be your strength, protector and healer, Nicola. Hugs & much love. XO

  440. Andie Parton says:

    Dear Ms Jones,
    I woke up thinking about you and wishing I could give you comfort and maybe I can. Two years ago today I got my diagnosis and soon after the Juravinski Center opened its arms to me. Through chemotherapy, surgery at St. Joe’s, then radiation, with the care of these wonderful people, I learned a new word: ‘handelable’. Much to my surprise, I found that I could handle it all. The chemo room wasn’t even scary; eventually I could even go alone. The great volunteer drivers carted me back and forth, even daily once radiation started. And here’s the part that I think can be helpful: I took notes during the days after chemotherapy started, listing the ickinesses that were happening (metallic taste, tiredness, loss of appetite, etc.). And here’s the thing, dear Ms Jones: when the next chemo round began, and I dreaded the side effects that were to come, I consulted my notes and found that, yes, these would happen, but they would only last for three and a half days, or even just overnight. Always, after a while I would feel better. It was the diary, the note-taking, that supplied me with that comfort. This too shall pass. I expect to see you on TV soon, stronger and prettier than ever. I send you hugs.

  441. Claudette Mancini says:

    Good morning, Nicola: Your positive outlook will get you through. I am a twice-survivor of cancer, ten years apart, and I know that the combination of faith, hope and love is stronger than any other factor in getting you back up on your feet. Keep up the good thoughts, the smiles and the openness while you undergo this battle. In the end, you, too, will win! Believe it!

  442. Andie says:

    You’re in my prayers, hoping all goes well for you with the chemotherapy. keep your chin up knowing everyone’s thinking of you.


  443. Carl says:

    Good luck Nicola. Have faith. Things will turn out OK for you

  444. Harry says:

    Trust Jesus Christ. God has laid the path for every one of us in this world, there’s nothing to worry about or fear.

  445. Sandra says:

    My thoughts and prayers are with you! I love your positive attitude; God Bless!

  446. SheMom says:

    Nicola… I imagine being a public figure adds a whole other facet to the experience you are currently facing. It is heartwarming to see not only how you are handling this with such grace and dignity, but how powerful the responses from the public have been. If love and light is what you need right now, I gladly send it to you. But as a Mom, don’t just shine gently right now – blaze! Face this predator and show it the door. And if there is any lingering fear – use it to fire yourself up. You can and will do this. :)

  447. Nick Bontis says:

    Hi Nicola, I’m sending you positive energy … be brave!

    Sincerely, Nick

  448. Cathy says:

    Hello Nicola…I thought possibly you were away on holidays..never gave a second thought. You are such a beautiful woman inside and out..sending all positive thoughts your way..stay strong and fight with all your might..all the best to you and your family Nicola…xoxo

  449. Deanne says:

    Hi Nicola

    I was listening at the radio station WDCX 99.5fm I’m not sure if you are familiar with it? It is a Christian radio station. Anyway I was listening today and there was a woman by the name of Kasey Von Norman. She is an author and a motivational speaker she was talking about her new book called Raw Faith. I kept on thinking about you while she was speaking about what she is going through. I hope you get a chance to look her up and her message will inspire you like it did myself. I hope you have a blessed Easter God bless you and keep you strong

  450. Sylvia says:

  456. Lori Sirianni says:

    Nicola, I’m so touched by your blog post and the articles about you. Sending you much light and healing, positive thoughts. Your story takes me right back to last fall when I too had my uterus, left ovary and fallopian tubes removed at St. Joe’s, where I was born, due to uterine fibroids, a large ovarian cyst and adenomyosis. The doctors and nurses at St. Joes are the best of the best and so is the Juravinski Cancer Center. You’re in the best of hands there, truly world-class cancer care. I’m so sorry you didn’t get to feel the same relief as me at the results of my pathology report. I know that fear, waiting for the results, and cannot even imagine how hard a cancer diagnosis must have been for you. Would that you could have had had a cancer-free result, because you have so many years of life ahead of you to live, and a young son to finish raising. I hope your aggressive chemo beats your cancer to a pulp and you do get the life you should live. :) Juravinsky is amazing; they gave my then-86-year-old grandfather 3 more years of life after radiation for his esophageal cancer in ’06, when his oncologist had said that even younger, healthier patients only survived about 3 months with his form of cancer. So please, never ever give up hope. Please continue writing; for many of us it’s a necessary catharsis and a way to cleanse ourselves of pent-up emotions, and to share our own thoughts and experiences to help others. And since I was a TV news producer in the 90′s driving to work in the dark at 4 a.m., I know exactly what you mean. You focus on the people and on why you do what you do. Bless your heart, Lori

    Dear Nicola:
    I am so sorry to hear your sad news. I had breast cancer 15 years ago and remained very positive and kept my faith in God. That is the best advice I can give to you. I have been cancer free for almost 15 years and Thank God everyday. I would be very pleased to pray for you every evening and think of you often with love.
    . May God Bless you and my he give you one of his miracles and return you to excellent health.
    All my love best wishes and prayers.

    Nicola, this sounds very much what my wife (June) experienced 3 yrs ago. We also had a battle with “it”. Last week we upgraded our camping shelter from a tent to a tent trailer. ;o)) Never give up, always stay positive and know that many, many people are in your corner! I’m not saying it was easy. It wasn’t. But you’re young, strong and obviously love life. So just as much as I knew June would beat it, I know you will too. Take care, God Bless and Positive Vibes being sent from Cape Breton! :o)) Joe & June

My husband passed away March 12th. Like you, he was funny, beautiful and full of life. There was a story on my husband Doug Rouse in Ham Spec page 2 yesterday, 28th.
