Alice says, “I am celebrating 5 years cancer free and I feel it is important that I give back to all the women in the Midwest that are going through what I went through. The Symptomatic Breast Unit are set to open their forthcoming unit in March in the new Leben Building at the University Hospital Limerick and need to raise funds for much needed medical equipment.”

The Keith Duffy Foundation has chosen Cliona’s Foundation to be their chosen charity for its inaugural event in Limerick.  “I’m delighted to help raise funds for Cliona’s Foundation for the work they do, it is something that’s close to my heart as I have seen the financial burden on families caring for a critically ill child and as part of my work with the Keith Duffy Foundation which aims to provide support and financial assistance to a number of chosen children’s charities throughout the country. I am also thrilled that Miriam O Callaghan, a much respected broadcaster and the official patron of my chosen charity Cliona’s Foundation, is coming to show her support on the night.”
