Nicole Purcell

Nicole Purcell lists having type 1 diabetes last when she's asked to provide information about herself - because that's where it belongs.

She is, first and foremost, a daughter, sister, aunt, partner, and friend and a professional fundraiser, writer, advocate, and dancer. Diabetes is both incidental and central in her life - an afterthought that makes its way front and center more often than she'd like it to.

A native New Englander, Nicole has worked as a fundraising executive for various non-profit organizations since 1997 and is a Tropigal with Chifferobe Productions, a vintage performance company.

Nicole's has made another attempt at monkey training after her first miserable attempt. She is obsessed now with lesser known classical artists and the memoir of Leslie Caron.

The Finger


So... About that swollen finger. Against my better judgement I skipped going to the doc for the swollen finger. It is my middle finger, by the way, on my right hand.
