Jennifer & Sarah O'Duffy - Kilimanjaro Challenge

Donor Spotlight: 

In June 16th  2024 we will both be travelling to Tanzania to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest freestanding mountain, in aid of Oesophageal Cancer. This charity is one that is close to our hearts, as our dad, Conor O’ Duffy, passed away from Oesophageal cancer in 2004 when we were 7 and 4 years old. 

Our decision to climb Kilimanjaro stemmed from our own dad’s journey to the summit in 2003, in aid of the National Children’s Hospital, Dublin, while he was simultaneously battling cancer. We will be Climbing on the year that marks his 20th anniversary.

On the 15th of June 2024, The Lalor Family will be doing a skydive in aid of the Oesophageal cancer Fund (OCF). This charity is one that is close to our hearts as dad, Philip was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer 9 years ago. Thankfully with an early diagnosis dad had successful treatment and with regular routine check ups he has recovered from his cancer.

We will be forever grateful for Professor Reynolds and his team in St. James' Hospital, Dublin for everything they have done for dad. The Oesophageal cancer fund carries out an annual lollipop day across Ireland to raise awareness and funds for Oesophageal cancer research. Since dad's diagnosis my family and I have  participated in this annual event.
