A break away for Josie

Jan 4, 2023 | Wish Stories

We were delighted to organise an airbnb for 4-year-old Josie and her mum to have a break away, as constant trips to hospital for treatment can be exhausting.

Whilst they were on holiday, they caught up with another family whose child has Dravet Syndrome which is also what Josie has.

Mum Liz; “Just another big thank you for your help to take Josie on holiday. The cottage was absolutely perfect for us and Josie loved it. We went to a farm, Peppa Pig World and Marwell Zoo in the three days we were down there – it was just great and Josie had an amazing time. We caught up with another Dravet family which was a great experience for me.”

Every donation, whatever size, helps a seriously unwell child


Current data suggests that 12 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every day, and that 1,900 children under the age of 14 in the UK are diagnosed each year.

More children are diagnosed with a range of other, often rare, conditions and illnesses that are also life-threatening.

Molly Ollys is committed to helping as many of these children and their families as possible, and works hard to raise the necessary funds to be able to help those who contact us.

You can help us do this by making a donation, joining in with our fundraising events, running your own events, using Give as You Live when you are shopping, and by leaving a legacy in your will. Please visit our How you can help page to find out more.
