This year's Dublin Marathon takes place on Sunday 29th October 2023 and we can't wait for our amazing Team Daisy to put their best feet forward to help us provide the right support at the right time to children and their families impacted by cancer across the island of Ireland.
We have provided short breaks to families from the Republic of Ireland in Daisy Lodge, Co. Down for over five years. It is our vision to build and open a second therapeutic short break centre for children with cancer and their families in the Republic of Ireland so that no child has to face cancer alone.
We are pleased to have secured land in the beautiful location of Cong in Co. Mayo which will uniquely offer more families the opportunity to spend quality time together in a safe and supportive environment.
When a child is diagnosed with cancer, life changes for the whole family. Our therapeutic services help each family member cope with the emotional impact of cancer and allows them to simply be a family again.
The need for another therapeutic short break centre is massive, and our second Daisy Lodge, Co. Mayo will allow us to increase the number of children and parents in Ireland we support each year from 1,800 to 4,000.
With you and the amazing Team Daisy by our side, we can bring this exciting project another step closer.
