Meet The Mather FamilyTreasured Time would like to welcome Nicole Mather and family as our latest “gift of moments” recipient!

Nicole Mather, 43 of Derby, CT became sick at age 15. After a couple years of not knowing what was wrong and after various tests, she was diagnosed with Lupus at just 17 years old. Since then life has been very difficult for her. Throughout her life she has been in and out of the hospital. When she was first diagnosed with lupus she had a major car accident where she died 5 times. The priest had even given her, her last rights. Nicole defied the odds.

She found true love in her husband Brian. They were told they would never have children. However, Nicole defied the odds again and was blessed with her “miracle baby” Austin, 17 years ago.

In recent years Nicole was diagnosed with diabetes and has suffered two severe strokes and three mini strokes. She has APS lupus which means she creates blood clots all over her body, intensifying her susceptibility to strokes. At anytime Nicole could have a stroke that changes her life forever but for right now Nicole does what she can to enjoy life despite her limitations.

Nicole’s wish is to go to Vegas and renew her vows with her true love and have her son walk her down the aisle. They will be married 20 years this September.
