Mizen2malin19 in aid of Craigavon ICU

As some of you may know Dwyer took seriously ill during September 2018. During this time if it wasn’t for the incredible work of the ICU staff, Dwyer may no longer be with us.

Dwyer required a special machine (called ECMO machine) to help save his life. In Ireland there are only two of these machines where Dwyer was lucky one was based in Craigavon Hospital.

We are looking to raise money towards purchasing another machine, so another family may be as lucky as Dwyer was.

In June 2019 Dwyer along with his brother John and Uncle Paul as well as his 2 friends Tony and Jim plan to cycle from Mizin Head (Cork) to Malin Head (Donegal) in 3 days to help raise some much needed funds. The final route has yet to be determined but this will in no means be an easy task.

We will in the upcoming weeks be fundraising whether it be shirt sponsorship or by your kind donations. So please keep an eye on this page for more details. Thanks already to all those who have already committed to sponsor our shirt and that have pledged donations.

More information on the machine can be found here https://en.m.wikipedia.org/…/Extracorporeal_membrane_oxygen…

It is primarly used for the assistance of babies or adults who suffer from COPD.
