"The doctors were baffled," Molly recalled. "To go from stage IV to gone in a matter of three months surprised them."
"I considered it a miracle," Ed said.
"I thought, 'I want to have another kid,'" Molly said. Doctors suggested she wait awhile.
Kelsey was born April 4, 2011.
Molly has follow-up appointments every few months with her oncologist, Dr. John Migas. She gets mammograms once a year and has experienced the progression of mammography from film, to 2-D (digital) to 3-D (tomosynthesis) mammography.
"That's how fast the technology is moving," she said. "It's crazy the difference in detail that you can see.
"More women need to take advantage of it (3-D mammography). It just takes minutes and those minutes can save your life."
Molly also continues monthly breast self exams.
"You need to know your body and how it changes," she said. "You need to be an advocate for your health.
"I'm more aware of what I eat. I drink almost no alcohol. I exercise more." She does cardio, weight lifting and yoga with Ed.
"We're teaching our girls to take care of their health. We show them a healthy lifestyle and tell them about healthy foods. They do yoga with us. They do relay (American Cancer Society Relay for Life of McLean County) with us." Molly also has been involved with Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
"We're trying to raise money for research," Molly said. "And we pray every day that our daughters never get cancer. I don't want my kids to go through what I went through."
"I feel good," Molly said. "I want to be cancer free forever. I want to be a grandma. I want to live life to the fullest."
