MORE ABOUT MICK
Read an article Mick wrote about his journey here: Kildare man at Harvard Law: 'Days before my 24th birthday, I was told I had 6 months to live'
I hope we can all rally around Mick again and show our support. As many of you know, Mick has always dedicated his time to helping others. He helped organise Kildare’s Relay for Life which raised €30,000. Mick often visited St John’s cancer ward in Crumlin, where he was treated as a baby, with presents for the patients. He has also volunteered with the Irish Teenage Cancer Trust, Harvard’s Disability Project, assisted victims of crimes in court, and helped out with Best Buddies. Michael has dedicated his personal and professional life to helping those most vulnerable in society. Now it’s our turn to come together and help Michael beat cancer for the third time!
Michael's parents have also instrumental in setting up the Ronald McDonald housing in Our Lady's Children's Hospital, Crumlin. Following Michael's treatment for neuroblastoma, his family and friends came together to give back to the hospital by arranging fashions shows in 1994 and 1995 raising over £50,000 in total. This was used for the construction of apartments for parents of children with cancer - the Ronald McDonald parent accommodation unit.
