Challenge

We would like to raise funds for a unique cancer diagnosis machine in honour of our late sister Karen Fenton who passed away only two months after her diagnosis in April 2017. We have been tirelessly fundraising since and wish to push on with our efforts for this key objective. This was a significant challenge for Martin but worth it as we continue to raise funds for state of the art cancer sequencing machine for CUH that will be purchased in Karen's name.

Solution

We will donate any funds from this GlobalGiving project to the local Cork University Hospital so that they can purchase the machine and help genetic based cancer machine.

Long-Term Impact

Help women who may be diagnosed with illnesses such as Karen to recover
