Loss propels Hinsdale woman into helping others overcome – The Hinsdalean

The death of Molly Haunty’s friend and sister-in-law in 2015 launched her into a group to which no one wants to belong. Like so many others, Haunty’s life had been touched by cancer.

“Cancer is pervasive, unfortunately,” Haunty said.

As her sister-in-law, Nancy, battled metastatic breast cancer, Haunty said she admired her friend’s ability to continue living right up to the end. With help from her community, Nancy was empowered to travel, run and even climb a mountain while also fighting cancer. As a supporter and member of the Wellness House Board of Directors, Haunty is committed to providing that same life-giving support to others.
