Meet the Patients

Because of you, children with cancer are receiving the best possible chance, support and care.
Every child in Ireland with cancer, up to the age of 16, is cared for at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin (OLCHC). St John’s Ward is the main cancer ward and in one year alone the ward can have around 1,140 inpatients, and more than 7,200 day patients.
Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin also carries out approximately 28 bone-marrow transplants for children per year.
Thanks to the generosity of heroes like you, St. John’s Ward has undergone extensive refurbishment over the last 5 years and now offers a vastly improved experience to its patients and their families.

You can be a hero for sick children, who deserve every chance at health and happiness
