Kieran O'Connor Fundraiser

Another battle ahead for Kieran O'Connor...

Our good friend Kieran O’Connor (39) former Aghada GAA & Cork Senior Footballer, needs your financial help to support him and his family with current living and future medical expenses to beat Ewing’s Sarcoma Cancer. Including possible travel abroad for additional medical expertise.


THE BACKSTORY

On 2nd October 2017, after what started out as a throbbing pain in his right ankle, Kieran was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma. Ewing’s Sarcoma is a rare form of bone cancer and even rarer in adults.
Kieran & his wife Sinead were also due their 3rd baby at the time of diagnosis, baby James was born 3 weeks later and Kieran began his treatment within days. Kieran went through aggressive chemotherapy for 3-4 months to shrink the tumour enough so that the surgeons could proceed with his operation.


On 14th February 2018, the surgeon operated on the tumour, shaved off 110mm of bone and attached ligament as part of the repair. The operation went well, but the healing process was long and painful. Intensive Chemotherapy resumed after a month and went on until the end of July 2018.
