CHARITY OF THE MONTH – Molliey’s Memories

Lola-Sue with Molliey

Mollie’s Memories was nominated as the first GB charity of the month for 2015 by Kayleigh Logsdon in support of her friend Mollie Beechall who had been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

The charity was set up to help 19-year-old Mollie to build as many memories as possible with her 18-month-old daughter, Lola-Sue, before she was finally overcome by the disease.

Diagnosis

Her original diagnosis was for throat cancer, but in October last year she got the devastating news that she had secondary bone disease for which there is no known cure.

“But she was very brave and was determined to fight it as hard as possible,” says Kayleigh. “She wanted to make as many memories as she could with Lola-Sue and the rest of her family.”

Difficulty

The family were even able to get away for a short time over Christmas, but when they got back home Mollie’s condition worsened and she began to experience difficulty in walking because of a numbness in her legs.

A fall forced her to return to Clatterbridge Hospital where an MRI scan showed she had a tumour pressing on her spine for which she would need radio-therapy.

Hospital

Tragically, things worsened very quickly and on January 12th her mum, Lee-Anne was called to the hospital and told Mollie might only have weeks to live.

Mollie died the next day with her mum by her side.

Paying tribute to her daughter, Lee-Anne says: “I have been proud to be able to be her mum and best friend for the past 19 years.  She will live on in her beautiful daughter.”

Student

A student at Warrington Collegiate, she was still e-mailing the college for work despite her illness.  “I am so proud of her,” says Lee-Anne.

Mollie’s final wish was that Lola-Sue would have the best future she can which is why Gladstone Brookes is donating January’s £650 dress down money to the Mollie’s Memories charity.  The money raised will be put into trust for Lola-Sue’s future.

The donation page http://www.gofundme.com/i6rets reads: “This page is now dedicated to raise money for Lola-sue as Mollie’s wish was to make sure Lola had the best future she could have.”
