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.
