My Story

Molly was diagnosed with a form of childhood leukemia, pre-B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL), on November 10, 2003. Her white blood cell count was very high at diagnosis and by the time she received her first dose of chemotherapy, her count was about 150,000. (A normal white blood cell count is between about 5,000 and 10,000.) Due to the high white count, Molly was placed into a "high risk" group. Despite the "high risk" classification, her prognosis was good. Her course of treatment involved 30 months of intensive chemotherapy. She had 16 inpatient hospitalizations and many blood transfusions. Molly responded very well to treatment. She completed her treatment in March of 2006. She has remained cancer-free for the past 10 years and has been declared, "CURED"! Today, Molly is a healthy, smart, funny, happy and resilient young lady. She is an honor student who plays two instruments, acts in plays, has an active social life and enjoys intramural basketball! She is very involved in raising awareness about the need to fund pediatric cancer research. We are so proud of her! Please keep her and all of the children suffering with cancer in your prayers.
