Thank you for your support of our dear friend and ASCF board member Erica Nowell and her precious family. All funds donated to Team Nowell will be used to directly cover non-medical expenses that the family incurs through the duration of Erica's cancer care. Such tangible support may include weekend child care, housekeeping, lawn service and grocery delivery needs during Erica’s treatment so that the family can focus every extra moment on spending quality time together and healing.
As many of you know, our beloved friend and ASCF board member Erica Nowell recently learned that after 13 years, her Ewing’s sarcoma has returned. ASCF first met Erica a little more than 13 years ago (as a then teenager) as she was completing her cancer treatment. Since then, ASCF has had a front seat, cheering her on as she graduated from UT with a degree in nursing and subsequently married her best friend Charlie, went back to school, started her career as a nurse practitioner and moved to Houston 3+ years ago to work for MD Anderson Cancer Center. All the while Erica and Charlie have been growing their family (now complete with Brooklyn, Charlotte & Sara) and serving as hope and inspiration for others facing a sarcoma diagnosis.
Erica has met with individual families and patients over the years at ASCF’s request. She has supported ASCF families at bell ringings, Christmas, Catwalk and even was among a small group who attended a very special wedding on the hospice unit a few years ago. Erica, Charlie and their family are precious to us, so now it is our turn to provide support to them as they face this new cancer journey.
