Meet Nicole Matthews. Her six kids ‘lifted her up’ through her breast cancer journey

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – Nicole Matthews is carried here by her six children. She was diagnosed with breast cancer on March 23, had surgery on June 3, then had radiation for five weeks and was declared cancer-free on August 20.

She is one of many survivors who have already signed up on #TeamMolly for the Pink Cupcake Walk on October 2. Join us. Register here >>

Just found out on Tuesday that the early bird registration fee of $25 to sign up (this year’s new #TeamMolly t-shirt for 2021 included in that fee) is going up to $$ at the end of the week. 30. So if you know you want to join the big outdoor party on October 2nd, sign up now. It’s family friendly. Kids t-shirt sizes available.

But back to Nicolette.

In a great twist, she’s not just a survivor who comes out to help others like her. She also personally benefited from Go Jen Go!, the local charity partnering with WBTV News and Taste of Charlotte Festival for this event.

All the money we raise on this walk — as we all walk around the Charlotte Knights ballpark — helps Go Jen Go!,. who helps local women like Nicole.

Her application for our team is seriously complete.
