"When I sing, act, dance, or speak, I want you to feel something. I want to inspire you to take action somehow. I want to make a difference and motivate you to make a difference in your circle of influence as well."                                                                 - Molly Oldham

A Little About Molly

Molly Oldham is a singer, actor and philanthropist  originally from Akron, Ohio, who is currently studying musical theater at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.  Set to graduate in May of 2024, she hopes to move to New York to pursue a career in the arts. She started performing at the age of five and was cast in OKLAHOMA! and spent her next summers on stage, in the pool, and on the soccer field. Molly found ways to be involved in unique aspects of performing all throughout high school, from being the president of her drama club to being a soloist as well as dance captain and in her show choir. She also enjoys dressing as Moana at birthday parties and parades, and has been able to produce and choreograph synchronized swimming shows at the local swim club, and has been a backup singer in a touring adult rock band, danced with residents of the local nursing home and been able to teach kids theater for many years. 

In 2019 she was accepted to her dream school as one of six, in the inaugural Musical Theater cohort at UNC Greensboro under the Direction of director, Dominick Amendum.  That same year, she was unexpectedly, diagnosed with a rare and aggressive brain cancer, Stage 3 Anaplastic Ependymoma. After a 7-hour surgery to remove a tennis ball size tumor, she woke up from surgery singing. After treatment, she was able to move to Greensboro an start her studies. Finally arriving in North Carolina for the Spring semester,  seizures and Covid joined forces to send her back home and slow her down. It is during this time that she began using her voice to advocate, build awareness and fundraise to fight pediatric cancer.  From speaking to the Governor of Ohio to appearing on ABC THE VIEW for Brain Cancer Awareness Month to singing the National Anthem for the NHL Hockey Fights Cancer Nights, she has found true purpose.

Continuing to use performing as a vehicle for advocacy, she professionally recorded her own original song, Mighty in Me, with Cancer Can Rock, she has Climbed the Hill in Washington DC to speak to change makers and politicians, she collaborated with WISHES CAN HAPPEN to throw a Gratitude Gala on her 21st birthday to raise over $50K for various cancer organizations locally and nationwide, and she continues to affect positive change by formalizing her own non-profit called TMI, The Molly Impact "You Can Never SHARE too much", where she provides resources to cancer patients aged 16-24.

Molly credits music, her medical team, her family, and her friends and the kindness of strangers for having today and for being able to have many more tomorrows.
