With one in three of us expected to have cancer at some point, it is likely that we or someone close to us will have the experience of sitting in a consultation room at some point, waiting on life-changing news. With this in mind, The Mercy Fundraising Foundation is building a new Cancer CARE Centre next to The Mercy Hospital to ensure this news will be told in the most supportive environment possible.
The CARE centre will encompass everything needed to ensure that patients and loved ones have full support.
C for compassion
A for advice
R for re-assurance
E is for empowerment – empowering patients to deal with their illness.
In order to make this Cancer CARE Centre a reality, The Mercy will need to raise €1.8m by 2020, alongside other cancer related projects for their Cancer Appeal. The funds will be invested into research, diagnostics, treatment and care of cancer patients, and enable nurses and doctors to lead the fight against cancer.
Q-Park and The Mercy Fundraising Foundation have a long standing partnership with Q-Park offering discounted parking to brave patients and visitors, as well as donating €1 on every parking validation made as part of the discount scheme back to The Mercy Cancer Appeal. By the end of 2017, Q-Park will have donated €15,000.
“Here at The Mercy Hospital Foundation we are so grateful to Q-Park for their generous donation in 2017 as well as all their support in the past. Our ongoing partnership with Q-Park is a great example of how a corporate partnership with a charity can make a real difference to patients at The Mercy on their cancer journey.” – Julie Harris, Head of Fundraising & Communications, Mercy Hospital Foundation.
