Thank you to all of the amazing ladies who took part in the VHI Mini Marathon last month. We are incredibly grateful for your support and all of the fundraising that you did.
A huge thank you and well done to everyone involved in the recent 26.2 mile row fundraiser at CrossFit, Waterford. We were delighted to be chosen as one of the beneficiary charities and receive a fantastic €4000 from this event. The money raised will go towards our supports and services for children with cancer and their families.
In honour of International Childhood Cancer Day on 15th February, we were delighted to organise a visit to St John's Ward with some very special guests. We were joined by Batman, Wonder Woman, Tinkerbell, Star Wars and Harry Potter characters. The children were delighted to meet all of the characters and receive some character balloons, comics and sweets! A big thank you to Emerald Garrison for taking the time to meet the real superheroes of St John's Ward.
Childhood Cancer Foundation is delighted to introduce the Beads of Courage programme to children in treatment of St Johns Haematology/Oncology Ward. The programme has been welcomed by kids and parents on the ward. Caoimhe recently received her initial beads and her mum Lorraine said “It was nice the way we sat around the table in the playroom and we all looked at the beads and talked about Caoimhe’s story. It helped her to express herself”. Thanks to Lorraine and Caoimhe for sharing photos of Caoimhe’s Beads of Courage with us.
