“We’d like to thank the people of Killarney for their generosity. We’ve had 364 palliative care nights for 66 patients in Kerry this year. We also do the volunteer driving scheme and have had 336 drives for 41 patients this year, the Daffodil Centres provide face to face advice and we do Breast Check and Bowel Screening as well as advocacy work in relation to parking for cancer patients and have this year provided 500 hours counselling to those wrongly diagnosed by Cervical Check. A big part of the fundraising money will go to cancer research which is ongoing.” - Kathrina Breen, Organiser
