2:44 am
after her diagnosis, molli redirected her focus from ironman training to the fight for her life. on june 28, 2011, the day of the twins' 7th birthday, molli underwent a very invasive seven-hour surgical procedure which removed a large part of her pancreas, a large part of your stomach, a large part of intestines, gallbladder and rerouted numerous parts of her digestive system. the recovery was extremely difficult, but, like a true champion, molli surprised even her doctors with her threshold for pain. two weeks to the day of her surgery, she was back on her bike. let's hit this cancer with everything you've got, i can handle it was her motto. throughout the entire process, molli maintained her biking regiment. the back pockets of her jersey held her chemo pump and she often showed up for radiation in her bike kit.
2:45 am
today she is cancer-free, back to her training and stronger than ever. >> isn't that unbelievable? she is here with her sister niki and cara who wrote that letter. welcome to all of you. >> thank you. >> i literally walked bimonthy this morning thinking she was a model on one of our segments. when i was introduced i said you are the person? to look at you, we cannot believe you had this kind of a year. >> it's been a year, but you know, i've been lucky. i've been very, very blessed. >> we talk about how difficult that is to detect. pancreatic cancer. it's very fortunate yours was caught when it was. >> i was very lucky. >> tell us about your friend who you told you were having stomach pains. >> i have a friend dr. david wyss who rides bikes with me. i was having some stomach pain for quite some time. it radiated to my back at one point, but i was training for an iron man race, i'd run 20 miles. oh, maybe -- and i felt okay, though. he insisted on, you know, molli,
2:46 am
i think you should get an mri. i think you should check this out. >> sure. >> i had gone and i had pancreatitis at one point, and he just didn't think it added up correctly so he insisted i get the mri. i got the mri and they found a tumor. >> wow. nicki, your sister just seems so incredibly strong. >> she truly is. >> is this the way she was from the get-go? >> from the get-go. my mother and i said every time we saw her, we were amazed. you would think we would have to lift her up and she was the one, when we were with her, she lifted us up. >> no kidding. >> she was just so inspirational and so strong. so proud of her. >> and you wanted to write us the letter, right? >> oh, yes. i was best friends with niki in high school. molli was quite a few older than us. i had met her a few times but didn't really know her. she would send all the information on the computer, i was watching and i was like, oh, my gosh. i couldn't believe she was so
