Ambassadors representing NECRET play an important role in helping us raise awareness of our cause of providing funding for focused activities that will improve the treatment and outcomes of people with cancer. They also offer us valuable support in our various cancer educational campaigns.
NECRET and the Oncology Unit are delighted to have Ireland and Manchester City star Megan Campbell and GAA Meath legend Sean Boylan as our current Ambassadors.
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.
I am honoured to become an ambassador for Necret and the Oncology unit. The work that their team has done in supporting those when vulnerable has been outstanding and I am really looking forward to helping promote and being a part of continuing to drive that on.
Unfortunately cancer has had a direct impact on my family's life having lost loved ones to the illness. It is unfortunately a disease which affects so many families around Ireland and the world.
However, I am looking forward to helping promote awareness, help be a driving force in funding opportunities for those suffering with the disease in order to help improve treatment and outcomes for many patients and their families.
I am delighted to be on board and will do everything to become a long serving ambassador of Necret and the Oncology Unit in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital.
Megan who was born in Drogheda is the daughter of Eamonn and Suzanne Campbell. She is a granddaughter of The Dubliners lead guitarist, Eamonn Campbell.
As a professional footballer Megan has been highly successful helping her team Manchester City win a domestic treble in her first season in 2016 and also played in the UEFA Champions League.
The talented defender has won 42 caps for her country. And played in an Irish underage team that reached the European Championship final and World Cup quarter-finals.
We are overwhelmed with the amount of young people of all ages who support NECRET in so many ways for lots of different reasons.
One wonderful young man who has kindly agreed with his parents, to be our first junior ambassador is Pearse Fanning from Drogheda.
Ten-year-old Pearse is the son of very proud parents Wendy and Bobby Fanning and a pupil of Scoil Aonghusa.
After participating in the CLIMB programme (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) with nurses Stephanie Mc Creesh and Nicola Farrell, Pearse decided to do a sponsored hair shave.
The Unit Team and NECRET were deeply appreciative when Pearse with his parents presented an incredible amount of €3,300 earlier this year.
