Local News

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – A TV star helped make a Knoxville girl’s dream come true Tuesday.

Molly has cystic fibrosis, but she’s not letting that slow her down. ABC’s “The Bachelor” season 23 star Colton Underwood was in Knoxville this week and worked to help Molly, who was selected by Underwood’s Legacy Foundation for aid.

The Colton Underwood Legacy Foundation is a nonprofit organization that was created by the reality TV star and former NFL player, Colton Underwood, to provide resources for research and support of people living with cystic fibrosis. 

Molly wants to be a University of Tennessee cheerleader one day. Tuesday night, she got some practice in the spotlight, performing a special routine with the UT spirit team. 

In addition to providing Molly with this great experience, Underwood also gave her an Afflow Vest, which helps patients with cystic fibrosis go places without having to haul large medical equipment. 

Molly will now be able to use her Afflow Vest to attend cheer camps, hoping to make her cheerleading dreams a reality – thanks to the reality TV star and his foundation.
