2013-10 - Molly Giudice

At age 16 Molly Giudice of Westerly lost her mother to lung cancer. Despite her feelings of devastation, Molly turned her private pain into a public crusade to raise awareness and money for the Lung Cancer Foundation.

To date she has raised more than $5,000 and it is her continued efforts and acts of kindness that make her the ninth Metta Students Foundation recipient.

Molly's swim coach and Director of Admissions at The Prout School nominated Molly saying, "Molly has always been a very driven young lady and I believe she got that strength from her mother. Molly has dealt with so much heartache this past year and never once let it deter her from doing her best. I know her mother is so proud of her!"
