A mother with terminal cancer has taken out a Times Square billboard to help find her daughter a man.
Beth Davies was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, and was treated with chemotherapy. However, in June 2020, doctors informed her she had developed metastatic breast cancer, which had spread to her bones.
The 61-year-old from Boston has now put up an advert to aid her quest to see her daughter Molly get married before she dies.
Last week, a 47-by-25-foot advertisement went up at New York’s famous crossroads, with a photo of her 30-year-old daughter Molly and a URL to her dating profile.
Along with her 62-year-old husband Rick, Beth is determined to walk her daughter down the aisle.
Beth told the New York Post: “I would like to see my daughter well-settled.”
“Considering that I have serious health issues, there is urgency,” she added.
Asides taking out a billboard Beth also took to dating app ‘Wingman’ to pitch her daughter as a suitable partner.
Molly told The Post that the app and billboard “cases a wider net”.
She said: “I want someone who adores me and someone I adore as well. I want someone who adds to my life. If this broadcasts that, it will all be worth it.”
Beth agreed, saying: “It is only fair since Molly acted as my wingman, escorting me to various oncology appointments.”
Since the billboard went up, Beth and Molly have been together to visit Times Square, with Beth taking photos of them together smiling beneath it, and putting them on Facebook.
Molly said she appreciates her mother’s mission to find her a good partner.
