Project Report | Nov 10, 2022
Your Support is helping cancer patients

By Stephanie Murphy | Fundraising Executive

My name is Jessica, I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia  (ALL) when I was 2 years old, I received treatment and was in remission for about  18 months. At the age of 5, I relapsed with A.L.L. This time the only option was for me to receive a bone marrow transplant. I was extremely lucky to receive a non-related bone marrow transplant in Crumlin Children’s Hospital from my amazing donor. 

  

My transplant was a resounding success which allows me to live a very happy and healthy life. I went to University College Dublin and currently work as a scientist for a cosmetic company in Bray. I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and dog. I cannot begin to describe the support my family and I received from Purple House Cancer Support Centre after my treatment. Thinking back on it, I cannot begin to imagine the toll my illness took on my family. Purple House helped my mam and dad and even my baby sister tremendously during these tough times, something which I will never forget. Even though I was cured from my cancer after my transplant, cancer will always be part of me and my life. Purple House helped me continue with life after cancer and helped me realise I wasn’t alone which was important to me. 

  

While we were one of the early recipients of their generosity, I have seen their efforts and success go from strength to strength over the years.  Their efforts are not limited to the people of Bray, but to County Wicklow and Leinster as a whole.  I whole heartedly appreciate how Purple House Cancer Support Centre’s effort was not limited to the time when cancer affected us. Over the years, they have checked in with my family and I, always offering their best wishes and support. Purple House Cancer Support Centre will always have a special place in my heart.
