“Thanks to your generous support of cancer research funding that helped save my life, now every night I get to kiss my wife goodnight.”

Chris

“Over 10 years ago, my life was saved. I’m here today thanks to the impact of research funding for patients, like me. Every € you can give helps save a life.”

Brona

“Just knowing the OCF is by your side on the journey makes the road a little less rocky. Without their support, it would make for a very lonely road, indeed.”

“A cancer journey is a personal one, mine was made more reassuring by the OCF’s continued commitment to greater patient impact, through ongoing research.”

WANT TO KNOW HOW YOU, OUR COMMUNITY AND FRIENDS, CAN HELP:

Unite with us in our rallying call to get 1,000 people across our supportive community to donate €20, or participate in our €20k challenge. Will you join us?

Your daily-and-doable challenge is designed by you so it’s easy to achieve:
Decide what to Give Up or what to Take Up, with the goal of donating €20 across 20 days to help us reach €20k.

Could you count on 20 people among your family and friends to donate too?

  • Give up a cup of coffee a day, take up a glass of water instead
  • Give up driving to your local shop, take a walk instead
  • Give up biscuits with your nightly cuppa, take up the cuppa instead
  • If you’re more athletic take up any daily-and-doable challenge of your choice to raise €20, encouraging your friends to join you.

 

You’ll be making a difference in the lives of those you care about because Oesophageal Cancer affects approximately 450 people annually, that’s all kinds of loved ones we love having around, from grandparents, mums, dads, brothers, sisters, favourite aunts, uncles or friends whose lives can be forever changed, on diagnosis.

Please always follow the latest Covid-19 restrictions, socially distancing if outdoors, and keeping your home and outdoor community safe.

Carmel’s Story

Early detection is key

  • Don’t ignore heartburn.
  • Be proactive. Get checked by your GP.
  • It’s not a problem if it’s not ignored.

We’re bringing the good fight to a bad cancer.
Bringing HOPE to one patient at a time.
Thank you for playing your part.
