Amazing Molly does it again!

For the second year in a row, instead of asking for presents for her birthday Molly, who turned five this year, asked for donations and has raised an amazing $2660!

Molly was diagnosed with an Optic Nerve Glioma on November 1, 2018. Sadly, due to the location of the brain tumour, it cannot be removed, and although thankfully it is unlikely to take her life, it will be with her for life.   Molly has lost the sight in her right eye, but the hope is that chemotherapy will stop tumour growth around the brain and save the vision in her left eye.

This brave young lady started her second year of chemotherapy in February this year and her parents said she is doing well.

“Molly’s happy-go-lucky attitude is such a blessing each day, and especially on the hard days. She’s a joy to be around and we’re so grateful for the friends and family, nurses and doctors in our lives, who are working hard to support her and our family through all of this. We’re a lucky family.”

Molly’s amazing donation will go to our Centre for Child and Adolescent Brain Cancer Research, Australia’s first research centre solely focused on paediatric brain cancer, treatment, and survivorship.

Huge thanks to Molly and to everyone who donated to her for her birthday.
