Molly Harrison was like many of the year 11s up and down the country studying for exams and looking forward to her school prom. Back in 2017 whilst Molly was studying for her GCSEs she felt unwell, put the symptoms down to stress but after a shock diagnosis it showed that she had stage four Non-Hodgkins lymphoma. She sat her exams but had to go into hospital to endure rounds of both chemo and radiotherapy and had to spend time in hospital.
Molly spent her 17th birthday in hospital but not only that, she had to miss her school prom. She says that she watched the prom via her friend’s social media from her hospital bed.
Molly’s friends decided that Molly should go to a prom and secretly arranged for another prom that Molly could attend when she was well enough. They organised everything and decided that this event would raise money for the CLIC Sargent charity that had helped Molly and her family whilst she was so poorly. The night raised £2472.32 for the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people and their families.
It is with things like this that make you realise how special true friends are. Molly will never forget that day but neither will her friends. They have all been part of some amazing kindness and one that also raised a lot of money for charity. Well done to them and best wishes to Molly for a full recovery.
