May 17th – Fundraising Concert.
A superb concert was given in St. Andrew’s Church, Westland Row, Dublin to raise awareness and funds for MDS. Many thanks to Christine O’Daly for all her work in making this happen.
The following very famous text is copied here, taken from the church’s website.
For those patients whose lives are deeply informed by religion, there can be few more moving words on the subject of solace: “Come to me all you who are burdened and I will give you rest”.
Brian Adair, recently diagnosed with MDS, had this article published in the Northern Ireland Water Newslatter.
In it he talks about the incredibly important need for blood donors.
