Biker's Pay It Forward, The Ornery One and Custom Dynamics is teaming up again this holiday season to bring awareness and support to a young mother of 3 that is facing not ony a tough time but a scary situation for herself and her children!




Nicole Boyd (single mom - 3 children (16 y/o son, 15 y/o daughter & 11 y/o daughter)

Support Group: her children & her mother/father

Occupation: Nurse

Current Age: 40 y/o

Diagnosed: August 17th 2022 with B cell Lymphoma non-Hodgkins - Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia

Age when first diagnosed: Got first treatment the week of 39th birthday!


History of Nicole's Cancer Journey as of today November 2023:

  • Hairdresser mentioned knots in neck

  • Dentist noticed inflammation

  • Doctor agreed & sent her for a referral to ENT

  • ENT sent for STAT CT Scan & more testing

  • Biopsy of lymph nodes - pathology reports shows B cell Lymphoma non-hodgkins

  • PET Scan & Bone Marrow biopsy

  • Treatment (starts 9/26/22, 9/27/22, 10/10/22, 10/17/22, 1/23/23 4 down 8 to go, 2/13/23, 3/16/23 last chemo treatment)

  • PET-CT follow up scan - lymph nodes are normal & look great, new mass found in abdomen near colon

  • Colonoscopy/Endoscopy scheduled 7/20/23 for biopsy of new mass

  • Oncologist - 2 more months & will recheck bone marrow for “in remission” status.

  • Continuing daily oral chemo with weekly labs until bone marrow biopsy in October

  • MRI on Pelvic Mass - I recently had an MRI to keep a close eye on a pelvic mass that was discovered during my last PET/CT scan in March. We are closely monitoring it for any concerning changes. (Next scan 12/2023)

  • Bone Marrow Biopsy: (10/2023) I am scheduled for my next bone marrow biopsy. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and saying prayers that it will show MRD (minimal residual disease) which would be a positive sign that my Leukemia is in remission.

  • New Bone Lesion: Unfortunately, the MRI on my pelvis did reveal a small bone lesion in my hip/pelvic area. I have been scheduled for a bone scan in November so the doctors can further evaluate the area and determine if biopsies need to be completed
