Help Michael continue getting life-saving treatment Michael (Mick) is a 26 year old, from Eadestown Co. Kildare, who is battling cancer for the third time. Mick is extremely inspirational, battling a rare form of metastasized renal cell cancer. Sadly, his treatment is not available in Ireland and Mick's doctors have advised him that he needs to stay in the US for as long as possible to continue receiving life-saving treatment. Click the link to watch a video of Mick's cancer journey over the past two years https://vimeo.com/256977965. As a baby, 16 months old, Michael was diagnosed with neuroblastoma with a 1 in 4 chance of survival. After chemotherapy, surgery and a bone marrow transplant, Michael remained cancer free until he turned 22. In his final year at Trinity College, where he was studying Law & Business, Michael was sadly diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma which required surgery (partial nephrectomy). Michael still managed to graduate with top grades, earning a scholarship to Harvard Law School to complete his Masters in Law. Four months after moving to Boston with his girlfriend of 9 years, Mel, Michael was diagnosed with a rare form of metastasized renal cell cancer. Luckily Michael was in the right city at the right time as new treatments were newly approved for his cancer. Unfortunately, this targeted chemotherapy is not available in Ireland. Michael's doctors have advised him that he needs to remain in the US to continue receiving essential life-saving treatment. Michael has always dedicated his time to helping others. He helped organise Kildare’s Relay for Life which raised €30,000. Michael often visited St John’s cancer ward in Crumlin, where he was treated as a baby, with presents for the patients. He has also volunteered with Harvard’s Disability Project, assisted victims of crimes in court, and helped out with Best Buddies. Michael has dedicated his personal and professional life to helping those most vulnerable in society. Now it’s our turn to come together and help Mick beat cancer for the third time!
