Do you get it now? 30 kids. 30 days. 30 links to awesome #MollysKids

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - September.

Hopefully this month is proof that childhood cancer is not rare.

What's rare is it being given this much attention.

Maybe you've read the posts and cried, maybe laughed, maybe rejoiced. The trick is to remember. These pictures are real. Every child here is in our community. Every family is one of our neighbors. Every story and fact and chemo treatment and diagnosis and moment of remission is something that actually happened. Every plea from a parent asking for more research and funding and dear God a cure... all of that comes from a place of life knowledge they've been unlucky enough to live.

I thank you, truly, for reading these stories.

Think it's safe to say we all thank the families willing to open their hearts and share their battles in an effort to educate.

Tonight at 11pm, we'll be showing pictures of all thirty #MollysKids from this month. I'm putting the story together now.

I'm also posting all links below. Feel free to share!

September - Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month - might be over, but I'll still be writing about new #MollysKids and keeping up with those we already follow. Not a post every morning, but definitely whenever it's needed. A calendar page flip doesn't stop anything. Cancer rages on.

So will we.


**Editor's note: This is about one of #MollysKids in the month of September, children WBTV Anchor Molly Grantham follows closely on her Facebook page. It was first published there – which is why it's written in a personal way. For years Molly has followed hundreds of kids with uphill medical battles. During Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, she featured one a day. Thirty total. Find this story and updates on all #MollysKids here.**
