Friends of Leukaemia Patients Cork
Friends of Leukaemia Patients Cork are an Independent
Registered Charity - Voluntary Group. Established since 1985. Since then we have provided help to many leukaemia patients and their carers in the Munster area.
A Not-for-Profit Organisation governed by a board of directors who are responsible for programme development standards and operations, we observe all the appropriate governance protocols and fully transparent with audited accounts.
We are a totally voluntary organisation with no salaries paid to anyone involved in our organisation.
100% of donations made to our charity goes directly into providing much needed support and practical help to leukaemia patients and their carers whilst undergoing a bone marrow transplant in St James Hospital Dublin.
We provide home-from-home accommodation within walking distance of the hospital in case of readmission or a consult until they are ready to return home again and all made available free of charge to patients and their carers who have limited financial resources.
The feedback from patients who have been provided with accommodation has been overwhelmingly positive and was a tremendous help to them during what can be a very difficult time, providing a home away home and away from the hospital to relax and to spend time be with their loved ones during their treatment.
This facility is provided through charitable donation and fundraising initiatives held throughout the year.
We do not receive any government or state funding to assist us with our work and we continually need new ideas as we could not continue to do so without the help of the public.
Our Patrons Ger Power and Pascal Scott are invaluable to our organisation and we are truly grateful to everyone that has helped with our work us over the years.
