Weʼre raising £2,000 to Support Air Ambulance NI & Prostate Cancer Research at the Patrick G Johnston Centre, QUB - with Tyrone GAA
Don't have time to donate right now?
GAA figures from each of Ulster’s nine counties will be taking on a 15,000 ft leap on Friday 14th April to raise money for both the Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research at Queen’s University Belfast and the Air Ambulance NI service.
Get behind Tyrone's skydiver, Ladies All-Ireland Intermediate Championship winner, Gemma Begley, and help your county raise the most money!
The GAA is great at rallying round for worthwhile causes - and both of these charities are surely that! Please give what you can. Your support will help so many people in a time of need, both now and in the future.
Over 4,500 men in Ireland are diagnosed with prostate cancer every year. The prostate cancer research team at Queen’s University Belfast, based at the Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research, is focused on improving treatments for those patients with the most serious types of prostate cancer.
The team, led by Prof Joe O’Sullivan, Prof Suneil Jain and oncologist Dr Aidan Cole is dedicated to ensuring that its patients and their families have the best treatments at the correct time and that survival rates continue to improve for men diagnosed with prostate cancer.
Air Ambulance NI work in partnership with the NI Ambulance Service (NIAS), to provide the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) for the region. Serious or life-threatening situations can happen to anyone at any time and on average, every single day two individual finds themselves in critical need of the service.
The charity’s operational helicopter carries a crew compiling pilot, doctor, and paramedic, 365 days of the year operating for twelve hours every day. They attend some of the most traumatic medical incidents across the province and are dedicated to delivering the very best possible pre-hospital critical care, both at the scene and whilst transferring the patient to the most appropriate hospital for their specific injuries.
