Thank you for taking the time to visit my fundraising page on iDonate.ie
My name is Robert (Robbie) O'Leary and this is my fundraiser, Robbie O'Leary's walk for Multiple Myeloma.
I've chosen to fundraise for the haematology unit in Cork University Hospital & stem cell transplant unit in University Hospital Galway. All funds raised here will go directly to these two great organisations.
In 2015 I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. After six months of weekly chemo, steroids and bone treatment at the Dunmanway Day Unit. I travelled to University Hospital Galway for a stem cell transplant. Post transplant I returned to Cork University Hospitals isolation room for 28 days to recover. Now more than five and a half years on I plan to virtually walk 188km over the month of July to replicate my journey from University Hospital Galway to Cork University Hospital. I hope you can help me by donating whatever you can. Simply click the Donate button above. All donations are processed securely.
