Celebrating World Ovarian Cancer Day at St James’s Hospital Dublin
On May 8th 2019, we were joined by healthcare professionals and patients, as well as many of our supporters of GyaneCancerCare at St James’s Hospital, to celebrate World Ovarian Cancer Day.
We would like to extend a very big thank you to the Emer Casey Foundation for presenting us with a cheque for €31,112 on World Ovarian Cancer Day. This donation will fund a part-time physiotherapy post on our GynaeCancerCare team here at St. James’s Hospital.
Many thanks also to all the speakers who provided such informative and varied talks and to our sponsors for their support.
