"Dear Friends As we come to Christmas this year you are in our thoughts and our prayers. It has been a particularly difficult year for us here in Uganda. We have had great difficulty accessing liquid morphine which is one of our most important tools in pain management. Since liquid morphine has not be available we hadve had to purchase sustained released tables and these are quite expensive. It is your continuted support that makes it possible for us to buy these tablest as well as othere drugs that are beyond our regular budget".
Come and join us on January 23rd, and make a difference to the lives of those with HIV/AIDS. We can make a difference.
Please support a table quiz tonight (Wednesday January 19th) at 9pm in Mary Barrys, Kilmore in aid of the Aimee Toner Memorial Fund.
Aimee Toner was born on January 21st, 2009. She had a normal birth, textbook, no complications and was perfect. At 8 months old she was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma (a very aggressive type of cancerous tumour) and sadly passed away when she was just 13 months old on Ballyconnigar beach, Blackwater.
During her illness Aimee received her medical treatment on St. Johns Ward in Crumlin. Her parents, in memory of their beautiful daughter are trying to raise as much money as they can to help St. John's ward achieve their dream of a new ward and to aid research into a more successful treatment protocol for Neuroblastoma. They have raised over €30,000 to date. Although we are all in hard financial times right now, please join Jane Crosbie on January 19th to see what we can raise for this worthwhile and needy cause. Cost is €5 per person, with spot prizes on the night. Phone Jane on 086 8513643.
