My Story

Four weeks ago Molly was a perfectly healthy little girl. We had been spending the winter sledding, playing soccer, and busy planning our April vacation. One day Molly started complaining of stomach pains. After a few days of enduring stomach pain, my wife, Meighan, took Molly to see her doctor who told us it was a stomach bug and then after a few more days an X Ray told us that she was constipated. After two weeks of dealing with a child in a great deal of pain, Meg took Molly to Portsmouth hospital and demanded a CAT scan. The scan proved that Molly showed signs of Lymphoma, and they immediate sent us to CHB. After several more tests, scans, and biopsies at Children's Hospital, Molly was diagnosed with Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma. We were at CHB for two weeks, and were able to bring Molly home on February 28th. Molly was doing well, and growing stronger by the day. In June 2009, Molly's cancer returned, but the new treatment wasn't working and she passed away a few weeks later. Molly was a fighter, and thanks to the support of family and friends, her legacy lives on.
