Achievements

  • Oct. 2010 Temple St CFOPD

It's a Big Thank You to everyone involved in raising the funds that CF Hopesource Foundation contributed to the project. The total project cost Euro2.3m and CF Hopesource contributed Euro545k.

Particular Thank You to Adrian Hegarty, Eamon Toomey and all at Friends First and Eureko Fundation who contributed Euro120k of CF Hopsource's total.

For the past 3 months children with CF going to Temple St have been attending clinic at the new CF OPD and any child requiring treatment in between clinic visits has been going there too. The result is that parents can bring their children to the new clinic without fear of cross infection while at clinic. Also starting a child on IV anti-biotics no longer needs to be delayed because of the lack of a treatment room.

This is a massive success and Thank You sincerely to everyone who helped to make it happen.
