This years Northeast Female "Dip in the Nip" will be the 10th year for it to take place and as always at a very Secret Location.. Again it is a women-only event.
As an experience and as many of the dippers will testify it is very much about life-affirmation and a celebration of life and our bodies in all its beauty.
With all funds raised being used towards improving the treatment and outcomes of people with cancer in the northeast it truly does make a massive and real difference to those fighting cancer.
For registration forms and sponsorship cards please simply email firstname.lastname@example.org your contact details. We will email you the form or send both form and sponsor cards out in the post.Read More
The Annual Living with Cancer conference is organized annually by the North East Cancer Research and Education Trust (NECRET) in conjunction with the North East Oncology and Haematology Unit with it typically held in late September in the City North Hotel. Unfortunately, this year’s event has had to be cancelled on public health safety grounds.
This public event is for cancer patients who are in treatment or who have finished treatment. Cancer survivors, caregivers or anyone impacted by this disease are equally very welcome to join us.
If you have any suggestions for speakers or topics for future events, please email: email@example.comRead More
NECRET is fighting cancer everyday in various ways.
Here are some of the ways in which your donations are INVESTED.
Big, big thanks to Pearse Fanning from Drogheda who incredibly raised €3,300 for the Oncology Unit by doing a sponsored hair shave. The Unit Team and NECRET would like to express their immense gratitude to Pearse who is only 10 years old and a pupil of Scoil Aonghusa. Pearse, who is the son of very proud parents Wendy and Bobby Fanning, decided to fundraise for the Unit after participating in the CLIMB programme with nurses Stephanie Mc Creesh and Nicola Farrell. CLIMB is a programme for children aged 5-12 who are experiencing the impact of a parent’s cancer diagnosis. CLIMB stands for Children's Lives Include Moments of Bravery. Pearse has kindly agreed to become NECRET’s first Junior Ambassador. We applaud this wonderful young man.
Pearse is very grateful to family, friends and all those who kindly donated to his fundraiser.
NECRET Supported Research Recognised Congratulations to Dr Sinead Toomey and Professor Bryan Hennessy whose study titled ‘Genomic and Transcriptomic Characterisation of Response to Neoadjuvant Chemoradiotherapy in Locally Advanced Rectal Cancer’ has been published in the Oncology International Journal called Cancers.

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
