LISTEN BACK: Rugby legend Peter O'Mahony speaks to Dave Mac about life in lockdown and his involvement in a CUH Charity fundraising campaign to secure ground-breaking technology for cancer treatment
Ireland rugby star Peter O'Mahony spoke to Dave Mac about how he's coping with life in lockdown.
Peter also spoke about his involvement in a fundraising campaign for the CUH Charity and the Karen Fenton Ovarian Cancer Fund to secure ground-breaking technology which will significantly advance cancer testing, enabling patients to commence their highly targeted therapies and clinical trials earlier. The technology will have immense potential to improve cancer patient quality of life and survival.
O'Mahony is asking people to come up with creative fundraising ideas for their social media fundraising campaign, have a bit of fun with it, and when they donate, they set themselves a challenge enabling friends, families, communities and companies to pull together to improve cancer services for future generations. It could be a sporting, art or household challenge (anything at all - run around your garden, a Zoom party, a 5k walk, shave your head, a virtual tractor run!) to raise awareness and fundraising for this worthy initiative.
You can donate to the fundraiser at www.idonate.ie/CUHCCancerCampaign
