Nicole Hoffman was worried she wouldn’t be able to give her daughter the party she wanted. That’s where neighbors stepped in.
SNOQUALMIE, Wash. — It’s a Snoqualmie surprise the Hoffman family never saw coming.
A very special neighborhood surprise party unfolded on the last day of school for students at nearby Timber Ridge Elementary. The Hoffmans moved into a new neighborhood in Snoqualmie Ridge in April. The family was barely unpacking their boxes when a dramatic life twist came in the form of a cancer diagnosis.
Neighbor Renae Carter says the Hoffmans came with a reputation for supporting the community and have a vast network of friends and supporters.
Nicole Hoffman is a mother of three and was diagnosed with Double Hit Lymphoma, a rare and aggressive cancer and was almost immediately facing chemotherapy.
“Her symptoms basically started the day we closed on our new house in April,” said her husband, Justin.
