Hi Everyone, many of you will know I have experienced some very serious health problems over the last couple of months, so I have decided to take part in the VHI mini marathon on the 6th June in aid of The Beaumont Hospital Foundation and all funds raised will go directly to the Haematology day unit, Coleman K Byrne, where I received my treatment.
Click on the below link if you wish to sponsor me, any support for this fantastic team of nurses will be very much appreciated, thank you
