Molly MacDonald was between jobs when she was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer in 2005. Unable to work to pay the mortgage and other bills while undergoing two surgeries and six weeks of daily radiation treatments, the mother of five felt completely overwhelmed.
Then her house was foreclosed and she began to visit food banks for help. “I thought, ‘I am a complete loser,’ ” she tells PEOPLE. “I can’t feed my family.’ “
