I have been incredibly impressed with the dedication, the drive, and the professionalism of the staff and volunteers of Molly's House. In addition, the founders' family and their trusted advisors have implemented a truly inspiring facility to help families in their time of urgent need.
Recently my own family had a serious health challenge in a remote city and several of us went to provide physical presence and all manner of support. Unfortunately, there was not such a facility as Molly's House in this city, and the experience of being a family member to a dangerously ill loved one was made worse by the lack thereof.
Stuart is truly blessed to have Molly's House and the staff that keeps it working. Please help provide them with the funding needed to keep performing their noble work and hospitality.

Working at Molly's House is very rewarding. We provide a home away from home. Ou facility is very eye appealing, cost very minimal, and if a client cannot pay, we absolve the cost. Our director, Louise Murtaugh, who won the Woman of Distinquish Award for 2010, has done a lot to bring to the attention of the community, MOLLY'S MISSION", helpng people during a medical crisis.

As a volunteer almost since its inception, I have yet to meet a guest who was not most grateful for having this facility available to them.
Molly's House is a beautiful 'home away from home' with a loving, friendly, comfortable atmosphere.
It is with pleasure that I sing the praises of Molly's House and those who work to continue to keep Molly's dream alive.

As a board member and health care professional I know first hand how Molly's House helps those families in need during a critical time. The house provides comforatable, affordable boarding for those who have loved ones in the hospital, nursing home or the hospice residence. Their caring voluteers make people feel welcomed and at ease as they deal with the illness of someone close. Molly's House also opens its doors to the arts community who have the opportunity to display their paintings or photographs, are highlighted through the gallery opening welcoming new artists monthly and then provides a nice decor for those who stay at the house. We are a blessed community to have a facility such as Molly's House to touch so many.

It is very hard to add to all the comments on how wonderful Molly's House is. As Molly's Father, I along with her Mother Debby, family and friends had to continue her Dream. A Dream that was open ended and beyond the scope of our imagination. To know that the Dream of a dieing young girl would help over 12,000 families to date and growing more every day is a great tribute to her and to those that participated. Her love of life is in Molly's House and that love and kindness is shared daily with each family as they come and go. Some with good news and some with bad but in any event their journey was not alone and certainly not without love and understanding. It is never a parents thought to loose a child and that loss is devistating. It is fair to say that we do recieve great comfort in knowing that this 'Home Away From Home' gives great comfort to those celebrating birth as well as those suffering a loss or illness. Louise Murtaugh is the Executive Director and in charge of Molly's Dreams, she seems to have a direct line of communication with Molly. Visit Molly's House and share the love and Dreams of a young girl! Kevin Sharkey

When we learned that our brother was in critical condition at Martin Memorial Medical Center, suffering from stage four cancer and complications, my brother, myself, and our wives drove seventeen hours straight from our homes in Maryland and Virginia to be with him. We arrived knowing nothing about the area, but in response to our queries the staff at the ICU referred us to Molly's House.

When we arrived at Molly's house we were amazed. The accommodations are comfortable, clean, safe, and very affordable. The house is convenient to the Medical center and to the cancer center where our brother was receiving treatment. The staff, both professional and volunteer, are wonderful. Many of them have been through crises similar to what we were experiencing and they have been a great comfort to us.

I first met Molly when she was a patient at MMH and I was impressed with her concern for others. She would speak of the need for a facility to be near the hospital for families to stay that would enable them to spend more time with their loved one. Over time it has become a reality. Thank you, Molly, for your dream and foresight.

Molly's House has opened its doors to the art community and welcomed us with the oportuniy to display our art to the community. It has increased community awareness to fulfill their mission to house families whose loved ones must be in the hospital which is located accross the street.
Everyone has worked together to help our community support the arts. As a local artist I appreciate the opportunity to share my work in this beautiful setting.

I too am an artist that showed at one of the excellant shows at
Molly's House.
This has given exposure to many many people as to the quality of
Molly's House, and opened eyes and hearts to the crying need for
such a place.
How many of us have had loved ones in hospitals when we feel so
isolated from friends and family? Molly's house serves as a
tender loving home to those who perhaps become ill while visiting
our state. Also those who live a distance from the hospital, are
welcome to stay in order to be closer to the hospital facilitiies.

It is a soft place to land and be comforted to those experiencing
chemo treatments across the street...some too weak to travel and
some who are completely alone with no family members near by.

We are blessed to have people in our area, such as the ones who
started Molly's House, and who themselves have gone through
the desperate sorrow of loosing a child with cancer, and now
reach out compassionately to others with equal suffering.

Molly's House is wonderful and as everyone now realizes, it is
a struggle to keep everything together finacinally this day and age.
We do need all the help with this special place.

AS A MEMBER OF THE MARTIN COUNTY ARTS ASSOCIATION, I WAS INVITED TO SHOW 2 PAINTINGS AT MOLLY'S HOUSE IN DECEMBER 2010. MOLLY'S HOUSE WAS A WARM AND WELCOMING PLACE TO DISPLAY ART FOR THE PUBLIC AND 'RESIDENTS' TO ENJOY.

I serve on the Board of the Art Associates of Martin County and was an artist exhibiting in the December, 2010 show. The staff at Molly's House was professional and caring. During the Open House for the artists, we were treated to the finest hospitality. I had the opportunity to meet Molly's father who lovingly shared Molly's vision for the home before her death. It was heartwarming to hear the history of how the dream became a reality with the help of so many from the local community: contractors, elected officials, children and volunteers. Molly's House is always open to weary hearts. May we always be blessed by this much needed facility.

I am President of the Art Associates of Martin County. In December 2010 we had the opportunity to exhibit our art in the Gallery at Molly's House. The workers and volunteer staff couldn't be more wonderful and willingly assisted with everything we needed. In addition they let us know about the way Molly's House operates, showed us the rooms and in general were extremely accomodating. It was a double bonus to have our exhibit in such beautiful surroundings and be able to also learn about how beneficial Molly's House is to the public. Molly's House is truly a gem.

Molly's house has been a God-send to us. Being far from home with a family member in the hospital is a stressful sitution. Molly's house has provided us with a home away from home. The entire staff has been warm, caring, and helpful. When you walk into Molly's house you instantly feel a sense of peace.

Thank you Molly's house.
