Why the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation
A little backstory before we get into how truly AMAZING the NPCF is. The founder of the Rocky Mountain Ski Fest has a personal mission to help children affected by cancer. As a young child, her best friend had a brain tumor and she watched as she went through countless surgeries and treatments. At the tender age of six years old, she became Carrie's "eyes" when one of her surgeries resulted in the loss of her sight. Carrie passed away when they were both seven years old. Since then, philanthropy and helping those less fortunate became Mollie's lifelong goal, personally and professionally. In researching ways to help and which foundation was most effective, there was no doubt it was through the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation! So...
We're doing it for the kids!
