Mile #61 Nova
Our daughter Nova Jimmie Jeanne Martensen was born on Nov 21st 2015 in San Bernardino California. Nova was healthy and very advanced as a baby and even started walking at 9 mo old! Unfortunately at 10 mo old we discovered a lump which was misdiagnosed 4 times until she was ultimately diagnosed with AT/RT on Dec 21st 2016. Nova fought long and hard going through multiple surgical procedures as well as chemo therapy but the cancer was just too much for her to fight. We lost our precious little girl on Jan 21st 2018 in Phoenix AZ just 11 days after we delivered Nova's baby brother Saint. Nova left behind her mother Heaven, her daddy Joshua, 2 older brothers Blake (16) and Lycan (6) and one younger brother Saint (11 days). Since Nova's passing we have dedicated our time and efforts towards The Super Nova Project a childhood cancer organization that we started in honor of our beautiful little girl. Our focus is aimed towards spreading awareness and providing support to those families still fighting. Nova will never be forgotten and we will forever be telling her story as well as stories of those like her, those lost to this horrible disease and the ones still fighting.
