About The Children's Leukaemia Association

In the early 1970's Sr. Fidelma, RIP, Ward Sister in the Children's Unit of the Mercy Hospital and Dr. S. O'Donoghue, Paediatrician, were acutely aware of the lack of facilities in the Munster region for children suffering from leukaemia. So together with a number of willing helpers they began the arduous task of raising funds to set up a Protective Isolation Unit. This was how the Children's Leukaemia Association started. In 1981 the Unit was opened and children with leukaemia from Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Tipperary and Waterford no longer had to travel to Dublin for the life-saving treatment as it was now available in the Mercy Hospital under the competent care of Dr. O'Donoghue, Sr. Fidelma and her nursing staff.

Today the Children's Leukaemia Unit is run by a dedicated multi-disciplinary team who provide the very highest standard of care possible ensuring that both children and families are cared for in a comfortable and homely environment.

The Children's Leukaemia Association is a Registered Charity (No: 10537)
voluntary government or state funding and relies totally on donations and fundraising initiatives carried out on a voluntary basis by the goodwill of the public. No professional fundaisers are employed by the Charity. All our donations are used on the wonderful services that we can offer to families.

What is the Children’s Leukaemia Association all about?

The diagnosis of leukaemia has a profound effect on a child, their families and friends. The Children’s Leukaemia Association supports and assists families in any way possible during the course of on-going treatment.

How the Association makes a difference:

  • Provides free home from home accomodation in an apartment purchased (through fundraising) and maintained by the Charity for families who have travelled long distances while their child is being treated in the Children's Leukaemia Unit.

  • The Association funds additional nursing staff at critical periods during the child’s illness.

  • Provides financial support when problems or acute needs are experienced during the course of treatment for leukaemia, cancer or other serious blood disorders.

  • Provides essential medical equipment.

  • Funds necessary counselling for the child and other family members and any other therapy services required.

  • Organises and funds a trip to Lourdes for the child and parent after treatment.

  • Organises special outing for children and their families including a Christmas Party, Parents Night Out and a Family Day Trip.

  • Funds Leukaemia Research focusing on quality of life for the child and family.

  • Funds educational support for staff who work in the Children’s Leukaemia Unit.

  • The Charity arranges regular Parent Support Evenings with guest speakers specialising in areas affecting the family.

  • We have committed to fundraise for the new Children's Leukaemia and Cancer Unit at the proposed new Children's Hospital in Cork University Hospital. We look forward to this new fantastic development and ask for your support.
