MACOMB COUNTY, Mich. (WJBK) - A Clinton Township teacher is in the fight of her life.
Nichole Wouters, the 27-year-old vibrant math teacher and volleyball coach at Chippewa Valley High School, got a life-altering diagnosis last month. Wouters found out she has stage-four lung cancer and it has spread to her brain. The news came as a shock, since she'd never smoked and was in the best shape of her life.
Thursday night community supporters attended Wouters’ Warriors fundraising dinner at the Italian-American Cultural Society.
Nichole is overwhelmed by all the support she's received.
"It is so amazing to feel so loved, so supported by everyone," Nichole said.
"I am amazed at the turnout," said Casey Stadler, event coordinator. "We sort of put out feelers in the community and it's a total showing of how much the community cares for Nichole."
During the dinner Nichole got word that one person made an anonymous donation of $10,000. All proceeds raised will go directly to help Nichole pay for her cancer treatment.
