Kathleen says thank you

Kathleen Kelleher from Dripsey, currently a cancer patient at CUH, is so grateful for the care she has received, and continues to receive, from the caring and professional staff that she decided to give back something in return. She looked no further than her husband, folk singer and avid lifetime fan of Luke Kelly who ironically was a cancer patient at CUH in 1980. Pat got together with his musician friends Dan O’Sullivan, Paul Carroll, Joe Noonan and son Ricky who kindly gave of their time to perform a Luke Kelly Tribute Concert at Griffins Garden Centre. A big thank you to Griffins Garden Centre, Dripsey who gave their venue to host the show and whose staff volunteered to help out on the night. Dr. Paul Kelly was in attendance on behalf of Cork University Hospital and explained that the funds raised would be used for the purchase of vital signs monitors for the Dunmanway Unit at CUH. A total of €4420.00 was raised and was handed over recently to the voluntary organisation AID Cancer Treatment (ACT) whose aim is to help contribute to greater patient care, treatment and comfort by helping to invest in cancer treatment equipment and critical research initiatives. Kathleen wishes to thank everyone that made the event a success.PAT 022
