“Nicole lived her life and loved her family fiercely and devoutly,” the Hazen family said in a statement. “She spent every day serving others as a mother, wife and educator advocating for good. From our family, we remain forever grateful for the love, support and random acts of kindness bestowed upon us. over the past two years and four months. We could not have walked this road, with her, without the help and generosity of our community. Glioblastoma has slowly taken her ability to talk, walk, talk and lead but never took her ability to love her children, family and friends. We are lost without her but will carry the torch of her unyielding empathy for everyone, from this day forward.
