Like so many women, Molly Cade believed in staying healthy and avoiding disease by exercising regularly, eating right and visiting her doctor for routine check-ups. Molly is a very active 53-year old mother, grandmother and avid golfer who has enjoyed the sport since childhood. Aside from her time on the green, Molly enjoys an extremely busy lifestyle, which includes hiking, boating, traveling and attending to her “grandma duties.”
And like so many women, Molly had no family history of cancer, never smoked, was relatively young and felt perfectly healthy. Yet, in April of 1998, Molly was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, the deadliest of the gynecologic cancers.
