News Anchor Speaks at LNRMC Cancer Support Group

Molly Grantham, WBTV Co-Anchor

MOORESVILLE, NC (October 28, 2013) – Molly Grantham is WBTV News co-anchor of 5:30 & 11:00 pm news. She recently spoke with the Lake Norman Regional Medical Center Cancer Support Group, discussing her family and several co-workers and their connection with cancer. Molly’s mother is currently battling her second round of breast cancer, her grandmother also battled breast cancer and her great-grandmother, who she never met, died from breast cancer in 1944. These events fueled her drive to go through the BRCA I and BRCA II gene testing on air when it was first available. Luckily, and to Molly’s surprise, her results were negative.

Molly is a very committed fund-raiser for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. She serves as the Charlotte spokesperson for Komen and formed “Team Molly” which is one of the largest in the local race.

The Cancer Support Group is open to everyone, with no registration required, and provides education and support to cancer survivors and their families.  A free lunch is served.  Please contact Mitzie McCurdy, Director of Community Outreach & Senior Extra, for more information regarding the Cancer Support Group at (704) 660-4859, or email Mitzie.McCurdy@hma.com.
