Molly MacDonald: My Cancer to Survivorship Story -The Pink Fund

Miss Molly lived as only the top 1.5 percent of Americans do, with couture clothes, jewels, a 6,000 square foot luxury home and all of the trimmings. So how was it that she found herself homeless, standing in a food line and fighting cancer all at once? This gutsy mother of 5 identifies with so many women, at every point of the financial spectrum, who are struggling through a cancer diagnosis. She understands making tough choices like: do I pay the house payment or the Cobra insurance payment, do I proceed with treatment or make the most of this new fantastic job, do I buy gas or milk with the last couple of dollars in my purse? As she searched out resources to help her and her new husband weather the financial storm through and following her treatment, she realized that none were available. As a result, her quest to get help became her quest to give help.
