Seán’s Story

During my stay at Inis Aoibhinn I decided to organise a fundraising event as a way to say thank you. I’m from Ballyshannon, Co Donegal and stayed at Inis Aoibhinn for 6 weeks while I was having radiotherapy treatment in Galway. There was no way I could have afforded accommodation in Galway for 6 weeks and would have had to travel from Ballyshannon to Galway each day of my treatment if it wasn’t for Cancer Care West.

I’m captain of a darts team in Ballyshannon so it made sense to organise a local darts competition. We organised spot prizes and a fabulous hamper, all sponsored, and invited people from around the county to take part. The winner of the first prize of €200 very kindly donated the funds back to the charity and we were delighted to raise a total of €2,075 for Cancer Care West. I’m organising another competition in Donegal town next week. I’m happy to do it; I would have been totally lost without the support of Cancer Care West when I needed it.
