Family of Keady woman diagnosed with rare cancer fundraising for ‘only hope at a cure’

Roisin Molloy from Keady

The family of a Keady woman, diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, are fundraising in an effort to send her to Mexico in what they have described as the “only hope for a cure”.

Roisin Molly was diagnosed with a rare, incurable form of spinal cancer – Anaplastic Ependymoma – back in November 2021.

After going through 30 sessions of intense radiotherapy, the initial scans were positive.

However, Roisin’s tumours have started to grow again and she now requires chemotherapy to slow down the growth – unfortunately, this is not a cure.

Her family are doing everything they can to help, which is why they have launched a GoFundMe page.

So far they have raised more than £21,000 of a £50,000 target.

“With her naturally positive attitude, Roisin has refused to let this defeat her and has researched alternative therapies and medicines,” said the Molly family.

“She discovered a Holistic Cancer Center in Cancun, Mexico called Hope4Cancer – a facility that has proven to aid cancer patients throughout their healing journey and Roisin’s only hope at a cure. This is costly, however, so we are reaching out for some support in helping us get her there.

“Anyone that knows Roisin, will know this is out of her comfort zone; fiercely independent, head strong and work focused, we as her family want to get the best possible outcome for her and hopefully get some of these attributes back. Thank you all in advance for your support, kind wishes and prayers.”

You can help support Roisin on the GoFundMe link here.
