'Molly's Royal Faire'

AMESBURY, MA — The third annual event, "Spring for a Cure~Molly’s Royal Faire,” will be held on Sat., May 4 in an effort to raise awareness and funds for The Children's Tumor Foundation. This year’s event is a Renaissance Faire theme; complete with actors from Theatre in the Open performing in character, an interactive live animal show by Curious Creatures, great food, games, prizes, raffles, and a silent auction. The event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Holy Family Parish Hall, 9 Sparhawk Street, Amesbury, MA. The cost is only $10.00 adults, $5.00 kids 12 and under, children under 3 are free.

D’ann McBryan states, "When we found out our baby Molly, at 18 months old, had a condition that we couldn't even pronounce and that could someday take her from us our world turned upside down. Everyone expects to have a healthy baby and when that changes in anyway it's a hard thing to accept. There are so many things that can happen with this condition, we could sit and worry about it or get active about finding better treatments. We have found we just have to focus on today and not worry about tomorrow. That’s hard to do because we all have dreams for our children and our dream now is to find a cure.”

The most common form of NF strikes 1 in every 3,500 births worldwide, 50% of cases being spontaneous, as in Molly's case, meaning her genes mutated. NF can cause blindness, deafness, loss of limbs, facial disfigurement, skeletal defects, learning disabilities, chronic pain, impaired balance and mobility, cardiovascular problems, malignancy, and even death. CTF are the largest non-government source for NF research and have won the top charity rating for the last three years.

One-hundred percent of all funds will go to The Children's Tumor Foundation to find better treatments and research towards a cure for NF. All donations are tax deductible. To find out how you can help, please visit Molly's website at mollybit.com.
