Thief steals 4-year-old’s collection for families in St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

ELKMONT, Ala. (WHNT)  – At a very young age, we learn a lot of lessons that we use for the rest of our life.  We learn how to be nice, how to share, what to do and what not to do.  A precious little 4-year-old girl in Limestone County has already faced some tough obstacles, and she is using her life lessons to bring hope to a family going through difficult times.

Molly Paysinger is strong. She’s been through a lot, though.

“She is my wild child. So I want her to be this prim proper little lady and she is wide open — never stops. Nothing ever gets her down — rough and tough,” said her mother, Christy.

Molly has spent more than half her life fighting cancer.  She’s also spreading hope, though — by giving back to families at St. Jude.

“We just had the idea, why don’t we raise money by giving back to the hospital?” said Christy.

Molly turned to neighbors, and within a month of raising money, she collected $1,124.

Recently, someone broke in the family’s house and stole the money.

Christy Paysinger said it’s not about the money. She feels for the person who took it.

“It hurts my heart worse that somebody has chosen to live life in such a dark place that this is the only last resort,” Christy said.  “There is no doubt in my mind that when they got home, they knew exactly what that money was for where it was supposed to go.”
