Molly Dunne was a 7-year-old Pike Creek girl who was diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension and HHT (Osler Weber Rendu) after collapsing at her first day of Kindergarten at St. John the Beloved Catholic School. She passed away in the early morning hours on Thursday, May 17, 2012 but her memory lives on thanks to her family, friends and the Miracles for Molly Dunne Foundation, which believes that we all have an enormous ability to help each other, and that the smallest act of kindness can have a huge impact.
On Monday, Jan. 21, the fundraising efforts for the Miracles for Molly Dunne Foundation at 2FatGuys Hockessin continue. The event, called 'Cause a Commotion for Molly!' is not for the faint of heart.
Chef Tom Craft has gotten his hands on some of the hottest peppers in the world, and is making a once in a lifetime sauce he's calling "The Commotion". For $15 you get an order of Commotion wings and a souvenir t-shirt. All proceeds are going to the Miracles for Molly Dunne Foundation.
The Miracles for Molly Foundation is setting out to help families with children who are working with Palliative Care at Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, where Molly received much of here care. Palliative Care provides for the comfort and quality of life issues surrounding a child who has a long-term or life threatening illness. "We would like to help them by supporting them with monetary donations where needed, and provide non-medical services where we can," Erin Lacey said, who is a close family friend of the Dunne family.
