No One Fights Alone - Craft and Vendor Event To Help Molly Ali; Montville VFW Post 10060, 91 Raymond Hill Road, Uncasville, , 06382

Molly is 60 and she has a rare form of lung cancer, called ALK. She is at Stage 4. She does not have to do chemo right now, but is on an aggressive medication. After the insurance pays their portion, her copay for the medication is $400!! She takes care of 3 sons and a mother who is incapacitated and needs help caring for herself. The cancer hasn't spread and is concentrated in her lungs. If the medication she is on now doesn't work, then she will do chemo. They can't do surgery because the cancer is in both lungs. The oncologist is hopeful she will recover.

This is a Craft and Vendor event to raise money for Molly's expenses. We will have over 20 vendors, Marilyn's Dancing Dogs serving food, a huge raffle table and so much more.
