Remembering Miss Molly

Posted July 12, 2010 by Jen in Tags: , ,

It was one year ago that we said good-bye to the beautiful Miss Molly. Molly died from complications associated with the lymphoma that ravaged her body. She was only 5 years old. Her death was a harsh blow and sad moment in my life, in so many lives.

Molly was first diagnosed with cancer in February 2009. Our little community was in shock, but pulled together to support the family and each other. We all thought she would survive – I mean, how could God let a 5-year old die? And for a short while she did get better. But then she got worse.
Her family now raises money to help other families with children battling cancer. This disease is awful. It impacts so many of us every day. I hope and pray for a cure soon. You can check out Miss Molly’s site and fund raising activities HERE

I suggest that you go hug your kids, spouse, mom, dad, sister, brother… loved ones a little tighter. Be thankful for their presence in your life and appreciate all that they are. And remember Miss Molly. She is missed tremendously.

    (((Jen))) There is no greater pain than the loss of a child. You, your family and hers are in my thoughts and prayers especially on this difficult day of remembrance.

  2. The most difficult thing anyone will go through is the loss of a child, whether it be a family member, a friend, a casual acquaintance… it always hurts, and never stops, even if it gets “better” eventually.

    I’m proud of Molly’s family for turning such a tragedy into something good. Raising money to fight cancer is a beautiful, noble thing to do, and I believe she would’ve been so happy and proud if she were here to see it.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to all who mourn the loss of such a beautiful little girl today.
