Taking place on Saturday July 22nd it involves an amazing 25km walk and ramble through the beautiful Boyne Valley countryside in aid of NECRET, who support focused activities towards improving treatment and outcomes of people with cancer.
Starting from St Peter’s Church led by wonderfully experienced tour leaders who have very kindly volunteered their services, the trail follows the River Boyne before gaining the woodlands of the Townley Estate and then meandering quiet lanes to Mellifont, where there will be an opportunity for that much earned packed lunch or other refreshments. A separate return route gives a total walk of 25km.
NECRET are delighted to have GAA Meath Legend Sean Boylan become our ambassador. We are deeply appreciative for his support and contribution to our cause. More details to follow in weeks ahead and into new year. #TeamNECRET

Despite advances and improvements in the treatment of cancer, there is still a long way to go and this is why cancer research is so important. Research is the only way to ensure that new and better cancer treatments and drugs continue to become available for people with cancer.
The evidence also clearly shows that cancer patients treated in research-active hospitals have better outcomes than those who are not. This is why, as part of NECRET’s mission we believe it is important to help support vital clinical cancer research.
Our Lady of Lourdes and Beaumont Hospitals are both sister hospitals within the RSCI Hospital Group that work together in delivering patient care. Members of the NECRET board recently visited the RCSI Oncology Lab on the Beaumont campus, where the research is conducted to receive an update on the very latest developments the charity supports; including approaches to improve the treatment of bowel and lung cancers.
NECRET would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has supported its cause and without whom these advances wouldn’t be possible.
The charity is proud to have supported advances across different cancer types including lung, ovarian, breast and bowel which can viewed at https://www.necret.ie/cuttingEdge

NECRET are very proud and excited to have played a significant role in contributing towards a significant development in lung cancer diagnosis. This new test which was advanced in collaboration by Dr Rob Smyth under Professor Bryan Hennessy will mean that some cases of lung cancer will be able to be monitored from microscopic breath particles. Lung cancer is the cause of approximately a fifth of all cancer deaths in Ireland and unfortunately the number of cases continues to increase by 3% annually.Read More
