MOLLY KATE CLOHESSY.   31/10/2000 - 31/08/2012


Molly lived a very happy life, her wicked sense of humor, quirky personality and sense of style certainly made her unique.

Every moment of her life was full of fun.  She loved being with her family and friends, her dog Rosie and had to take her bear with her everywhere. Her favorite colour was pink and Pink was also her favorite singer and dancer.

Living with epilepsy gave Molly a uniqueness and an ability to cope with many life threatening situations.

It was her strength and tenacity that assisted her in overcoming the most incredible odds.

Her huge personality and presence in life, has left an indescribable absence in our lives.

She was an inspiration to all who knew her and her story.  The impact she made is endless, and now, with her passing she still continues to inspire and encourage many.

Molly was involved in many ways over her 11 3/4 years in raising awareness of epilepsy and Dravet Syndrome. 

It now gives us great pride in continuing her work, not only raising funds to assist with research into Dravet Syndrome and bringing Australian families together, but to continue to spread the word about epilepsy.

We work with individuals and families, organisations and the community to increase people’s understanding of epilepsy.

The Epilepsy Foundation uses evidence based practice to stop avoidable deaths, ensure children get a good education, help people get and keep their jobs and help people feel safe and connected.

A good understanding of epilepsy is the key to achieving these outcomes.

The Epilepsy Foundation believes no one should go it alone with epilepsy.

Every day we try to make life better for people living with epilepsy and this is made possible because of the support of people like you. The Epilepsy Foundation encourages the community to get involved with fundraising so people living with epilepsy don’t have to go it alone.
