Tip of the Month Recipient | Molly Miller Family

All tips given the month of December will be donated to the Molly Miller family of Coldwater. Molly is 30 years old and married to Jay who owns St. Henry Gutter and Supply. They have two daughters, Ivy (2 years old) and Sunni (3 months old).

Molly’s story started when she was three months old when she was diagnosed with a rare blood disease called Familial Erythrophagocytic Lymphotistiocytosis (only 150 known cases in the world). The only cure was a bone marrow transplant, and after months of transfusions, lab work, chemotherapy, spinal taps, and a splenectomy Molly received her new marrow donated by her father. After a six month stay at Dayton and Cincinnati Children’s Hospitals, she was able to come home to her family. Although she was cured, she still had appointments for years following to keep an eye on her health.

Molly was 24 years old, when she nearly died from bacterial meningitis. This caused her to move from Cincinnati back home to Coldwater where she met her husband, Jay Miller.

Although Molly was told she would never be able to have children due to her rare blood disease, Molly and Jay had Ivy in September 2020. They found out they were expecting their second daughter in October 2022. Routine lab work showed that Molly had many abnormal counts and she was sent on to Ohio State for a bone marrow biopsy which showed she had a rare form of cancer called Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS). The doctors advised her to abort the baby so she could start the treatment soon. Molly and Jay would not abort their gift from God. The doctors were amazed that they would risk Molly’s life to save their little girl. Many labs and transfusions of red blood cells and platelets were needed for her to under go a C-section at 34 weeks in September 2022. Everything went well, and their baby girl Sunni is currently home with family and thriving.

Two weeks after delivering, Molly had another bone marrow biopsy and her IV chemo treatment began. Although the treatment was successful it made her very ill, so she had to discontinue the treatment for two weeks. She currently is starting her second round of treatment. Hopefully after three rounds of chemo, Molly will have her bone marrow transplant which will give her a healthy outlook for the years to come. During the bone marrow transplant process, she will spend about four months in and near the Columbus Hospital. Molly still has a long journey ahead of her, and continues to need red blood cells and platelets, so please keep her and those aiding her in your prayers.

Molly’s hobbies include reading, cooking, swimming, and traveling. She also loves to spend time with her friends and family, playing games, and watching the Cleveland Browns. Let us keep the Miller family in our daily prayers. Your generous tip will help cover their ongoing medical bills. Thank you and God bless!

December 2022
