mily Fowler and Nicole Fiehler are a force. When you sit down for coffee with them, their passion and enthusiasm envelopes you and gets you going faster than a double espresso ever could. As the executive director (Fowler) and donor relations manager (Fiehler) for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, these two Cornelius women lead the national effort of this nonprofit
to combat pediatric cancer. For Fowler and Fiehler, September is much more than football and falling leaves, it's Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and it’s the anniversary of Cookies for Kids’ Cancer’s founding in 2008. Since its founding, the organization has granted $12.5 million to fund pediatric cancer research, and things are just getting started.
