The scope of work carried out by Cliona’s Foundation’s is one-of-a-kind. While many charities focus on children’s illnesses and their welfare, Cliona’s Foundation uniquely provides financial help with non-medical costs.
These can amount to significant sums as Brendan and Terry know very well. Over the years, as Brendan & Terry’s daughter Cliona, underwent numerous hospital treatments for her brain tumour, the couple were struck by the number of families facing enormous financial hardship. Blind-sided by all the non-medical expenses associated with a sick child, they saw at first-hand the enormous toll and additional stress it took on families, already struggling with the nightmare of having a seriously ill child. Following Cliona’s tragic death, they turned their tragedy into positive action and started fundraising to help those less fortunate families.
