Event Details

Edit
Hey everybody, so with restrictions easing and hairdressers reopening, I've decided it's time I got a haircut. I don't know whether to keep the length and just go for a trim or maybe go for something a little shorter. What do you think?

Yup… My hair and what to do with it, this is the extent of my problems right now.

Much different to my nephew Caden. After being diagnosed out of the blue last Christmas with a brain tumour, Caden underwent two life saving operations at Temple Street Hospital, but needed treatment abroad in Germany.

Enter The Gavin Glynn Foundation.

The Gavin Glynn Foundation (TGGF) are dedicated to making sure seriously ill children are given the opportunity to travel abroad for life saving treatment that is not currently available in Ireland. After receiving a phone call from my distraught sister Christine, TGGF spared no time oragnising flights and accommodation to Germany so Caden could receive life saving proton therapy treatment.

Caden is now back in Ireland receiving weekly chemotherapy at Crumlin Childrens Hospital. Like all of us, he is getting used to the new normal, but for him it’s something completely different. His days can be spent waiting or lying in hospitals in the mornings, tired and in need of his wheelchair in the evenings, all the while with his lovely blonde hair falling out. This is the extent of his problems right now. Problems I can’t even begin to comprehend.

So to thank The Gavin Glynn Foundation for all the work and support they gave to my family, (and to finally sort my hair out!) on August 22nd @12 p.m, I’m going to let Caden give me a haircut. A one all over.

The fundraiser will be streamed live via Facebook live (link to follow soon) and all donations no matter how big or small will go straight to The Gavin Glynn Foundation. To help them continue the fantastic work they do in helping seriously ill children and their families. So come along and watch me get a #1 from my number 1!
