When Boston-born Beth Davis was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, she was on chemotherapy and she was making good progress. But in June 2020, she found out she had metastatic breast cancer, which had spread to her bones, and she might not have much time left with her husband Rick and their daughter, Molly.
Davis, 61, feels “urgent”, she said, to help Molly find the love of her life.
With her daughter’s consent, she placed a profile for Molly on a dating app called Wingman, where friends and family endorse a loved one to find a mate. That turned into a giant billboard placed in Times Square with a profile of Molly when Wingman founder Tina Wilson learned of the family’s story.
Davis told CNN she was inspired to focus on her daughter’s love life while living with cancer because she wanted to see her happy.
“Molly always spends a lot of time with us, including taking time off to fly to New Zealand last year [where I was] When I was diagnosed and Molly, like many young people, had their social lives disrupted during these Covid years, so I really just wanted to help her find that special someone,” Davis said. .
She added that she admires Molly for her sunny “half full glass” personality.
“She really sees the good in people and really tries to make people’s lives better,” says Davis. “She’s smart and very funny, loves to laugh and doesn’t take herself too seriously. She works hard but always tries to balance that with fun, and I really admire that.”
Davis said that while she’s trying to push things through to find Molly’s match, she’ll hold off with her daughter to “tell me when she’s met ‘The One.'”
“I would love to know that Molly has a good partner, loves her and puts her first, because I know she will love him,” she said. “I’d love to see her surrounded by his lovely family who will embrace her. And I bet she’ll just fall right into his massive circle of friends, and they will. plan your own exciting adventures.”
Molly, 30, told CNN she doesn’t mind her mother’s efforts. Her ideal travel companion, she says, is “someone who makes me laugh and is a good communicator.”
“My mom and dad lean on each other,” she added. “That’s what I was looking for.”
