My name is Harlee Hutchinson. Most now know me as the Marketing & Events Coordinator at Gainesville Harley-Davidson, where I work with a different non-profit each month and plan events that will spread awareness, raise money, (and hopefully sell a bike or two.) I am also a young woman who experienced trauma from a young age, but every setback is what made me who I am today and gave me the fearlessness and determination that brought me this far. I have not yet acquired some of the amazing accomplishments that many of the honorees do, but I believe that my most remarkable accomplishments are those that happened during my hurting and healing.
I am still trying to figure out all the ways I will make an impact and gain a title, but I can say that I have:
Learned the importance of standing up for myself and what I believe in.
Understood that what happened to me does not define me!
Realized that I am the boss of me. I can create any kind of life I want.
Lent a hand, a hug, and a kind heart to other girls who had the weight of the world on their shoulders.
I am so honored to be recognized by Girls Can Do IT Too. Inside I will always be a little girl who decided she could do it despite all the bad, and I will continue to remind those who feel like it cannot be done that we are women, we are stronger than we know, and we
CAN DO IT.
At age 32, Blossoming Butterfly's Founder Nicole Miller, was diagnosed with stage 2 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (Triple Negative). Her heart dropped instantly. Her kids and family were the first to come to her mind. It seemed as though her life took a turn for the worse. She had seven months of chemo. After chemo was completed, she had six weeks of radiation therapy five days a week (Monday through Friday). Once Nicole's body began to change, she began to feel weak, helpless, and "ugly".
While going through treatment, Nicole was blessed to meet and gain friendships with older women who experienced breast cancer. During her experience, she realized there were not many young women speaking of their journey. Through her journey, God has allowed her to influence and encourage others during their process. She has spoken at events sharing her story and uplifting others.
The women who came into her life during her battle were very supportive (emotionally and financially). Her goal is to do the same through Blossoming Butterfly, Inc. Nicole aims to not only give encouragement for her sisters and brothers traveling along this uncertain journey, but also to educate, help prepare for the battle, and financially help those out of work due to breast, ovarian, and uterine cancer.
