Meet Molly Lind. Mom to Nate(17), Noah(15) and Iris(11). Molly spends her days doing what moms do: shuffling between work, kid's schools, and home. Helping with homework and getting meals on the table. Cheering the kids on at baseball games, soccer games, piano recitals, band performances. Preparing for each new stage of life as her kids grow up. And Molly has Stage 2 Breast Cancer.

Generally speaking she has stage 2 breast cancer. There are many more details of course and she knows them all. An education no one wants. In recent weeks Molly's had mastectomy surgery and, one day after her oldest child Nate's graduation ceremoney, she had her first round of chemo. After three more rounds, she will need reconstruction surgery and then 5 years of hormone therapy.

Life doesn't stop coming at you when you have cancer. Amazing times and hard times. Our family has learned that Molly doesn't stop being "Molly" when she faces cancer. She continues to put a smile on at every occasion. At holiday gatherings, birthday celebrations, and high school graduations. She remains positive at the many doctors appointments, surgeries, and chemo-treatments.

This fund is to help pay for all the medical expenses that Molly's insurance doesn't cover. Our entire family appreciates any and all efforts to assist in covering the accumulation of costs from the very necessary medical treatments that are saving the life of Nate, Noah and Iris's mom!

Hey Folks!

It's been a while since our last update. Mostly because Molly has been about her life. As she has continued this current phase of treatment, she's returned to work and, as maybe you've seen on Facebook, her hair has started to grow back! In between doctors visits and scans she takes care of her family and does her best to put the difficulties and pains the treatments have left her with aside to live her life to the fullest.

This morning she had the first of two addition surgeries. Tonight we're asking for your continued support. She's in a great deal of pain this evening and finding it very difficult to get the rest she needs. Any prayers, well wishes, and thoughts of well-being you might send her way are greatly appreciated.

Hi Family, Friends, and Supporters!

Please send your love to Molly today. She has her reconstruction surgery this morning, expected to take 5 hours.

She's been struggling with fatigue and pain lately. It appears to be due to the lingering effects of chemo and related treatments which have caused arthritis and bone stress fractures. Her spirits seem good though. I think she's happy to be moving through the process.

I will post an update for you later today.

Hi Everyone!

Thanks to all who's prayers, hopes, best wishes, and good vibes continue for Molly! We don't discriminate against love in any form!

We want to share with you this picture from Molly's Birthday celebration. This last birthday celebration was maybe a little sweeter and we felt a deeper sense of gratitude, as it also marked the completion of her last chemo treatment. YAAAAAY!

The hormone suppression therapy that she will be in for the next 5 years has begun and at some point soon she will prepare for reconstruction surgery.

There were additional consequences to the cancer killing chemo. Along with the lousy, terrible, painful treatment itself, Molly is now left with early osteoporosis.

I'll just take a moment to remind everyone why we're fundraising. Not only are there thousands of medical bills that insurance hasn't covered but there are also beneficial treatments, to help Molly regain her health, that we would LOVE to see her receive.

Please, share our message on Facebook and other social media and however else you may feel led to do so. And watch for other fundraising opportunities. I will update you on those as they develop.
