Kentucky toddler's cancer in remission after long treatment

Kentucky toddler in remission after beating stage 4 cancer

'I hugged her for five minutes': Kentucky toddler beats stage 4 cancer

Molly Hughes beat cancer after she was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma at almost five months old.

For many kids, normal looks like what Molly Hughes loves to do now: play outside.

"Just like fell to the ground after I got off the phone and I just hugged her for like five minutes", said Chelsea Hughes, Molly's mother.

Molly's treatment included surgeries, stem cell transplants, radiation and chemotherapy and family pictures show her with a big smile and a large port for medicines in her chest.

So she is trading in hundreds of nights in a hospital for what every 21-month-old longs for - bubbles and tire swings in sunshine.

"I don't think people realize, until you actually go through it, just how hard it is", said Molly's mother, Chelsea Hughes.

Hughes says her daughter is energetic now and loves to go outside.

The family made up for their little fighter the phrase "Molly Strong", which was branded on clothing.

But, she said her daughter always bounced back after every treatment. "I mean it would knock her down for few days and then she would be at playing again", said Hughes.

"There is NO active cancer left in her little body", the post read.

Her mother believes Molly's determination and strength helped her get through-along with support from those following her fight.

Molly will now start a trial drug to keep the cancer at bay.
