Patient Story -Vivian Golding
“I had been told there was no hope, and now here was a woman telling me, that she was prepared to surgically remove the cancer. I couldn’t believe it”. Vivian kindly shares her story with us and tells us why she is fundraising for GynaeCancerCare at St James’s Hospital in this year’s VHI Women’s Mini Marathon.
Brave -Challenging Family Breast Cancer
The BRAVE Appeal is working to support the BRAVE individuals and families who are at high risk of developing breast cancer, and to fund further research in partnership with Trinity College, Dublin. 1 in 20 women are likely to have a faulty gene, putting them at higher risk of cancer.
Brain Disease Appeal
Our neurological team has over 1800 admissions per year treating people with a range of brain diseases including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinsons, and Alzheimer’s. They are seeking donations to open a new Brain Disease Centre at St James’s to implement a new model for patient care in neurological disease.
Target Lung Cancer Appeal
Lung cancer is the greatest cause of cancer deaths in Ireland. The rate of increase in lung cancer is now greater in women than men, in Ireland. Target Lung Cancer (TLC) appeal is seeking donations for lung cancer patient support, diagnostics and research at St. James’s Hospital. Neven Maguire is our fantastic Ambassador for TLC.

Up-date from our Small Grants Programme
St James’s Hospital staff members update us on their projects and initiatives from the 2016/2017 Small Grants Competition. Each year, due to donations we receive, we run a competition with staff to award small grants of up to €2,500 each. It is a very popular scheme and we try to help as many initiatives as possible.
