Meet Our Boy & Girl of the Year

Meet Our Boy & Girl of the Year

Meet Molly:

Two and half years ago Molly's left foot started hurting. Like any active 7 year old, her parents thought it was just a broken bone. Turns out it was much worse. Within a week, Molly had been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  She immediately began an intense, high-dose chemotherapy.
Due to her treatment, Molly missed almost all of 2nd grade. But thanks to the support of her school she has been able to stay on top of her education. 
Molly is now in her final phase of treatment. Her hair has grown back. She's back in school and loving it. She joined a swimming team and loves music, dancing, YouTube videos and playing with her friends. 
Kellie, Molly’s older sister, has been amazing throughout this whirlwind, and they have both fought together through the ups and downs - like true warriors. Molly’s family is excited to say that October 19, 2017 is her last day of chemo!

Meet Stanley:

Stanley was only 13 months old when he was diagnosed.  He was not sick at all, but needed to be rushed to the ER one Wednesday night because his parents thought he had swallowed something.  Within 24 hours, Stanley was admitted to the Cleveland Clinic with a diagnosis of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He began a six phase treatment plan of chemo-therapy. Currently, Stanley is half way though his treatment.  Despite having to be isolated for the last 18 months, Stanley remains happy and sweet through it all.  He loves going to the clinic to see all of his friends.  Stanley has gone through more in his 3 years than most adults do in a lifetime, but each day he becomes more compassionate, tender and full of life.
