Molly's Kids: 10-year-old girl makes 70 breast cancer surgery pillows to donate to those fighting


Nifty little story – 

This 10-year-old Lincoln County girl, Carly Correll, made 70 pillows. Sewed them all for breast cancer patients. Bought the fabric and stuffing with money she made from selling scarves she crocheted.

Her mom, Michelle, emailed and asked if I knew of a place where Carly could donate them.

I suggested Carolina Breast Friends on Morehead Street.  It’s not a medical center, it’s a networking spot for women who are diagnosed.  Lots of survivors are there and can help find the best wig… how to explain to your child why mommy is bald… or… maybe do something as simple as pass on a pillow to help make the pain after breast cancer surgery more bearable.

Carly called.  CBF was ecstatic.  They got them all yesterday.

As icing on the cake to this story, Carly is the younger sister of BJ Correll.  BJ first became one of our #MollysKids back in June.  He has been fighting leukemia.  (Read about BJ here.)

Carly knows what illness in a household is like and how small comforts – like a pillow – can go a long way.

Generous. Thoughtful. Creative. Kind. All at 10 years old.

Thank you, Carly, for reminding us about the goodness in people.
