Nicky Supporting The Oscar Knox Appeal
“Our precious little boy, Oscar, was diagnosed with high risk Neuroblastoma (an extremely rare and aggressive childhood cancer) on 30th November 2011. Every parent would say their child is “one in a million”, but Oscar truly is one in ten billion (see Oscar’s Story). This blog is to update our many friends and family members who are supporting us and brave little Oscar as we face this challenge head on and fight it day by day… By Leona and Stephen Knox”
Georgina on Irish Premature Babies.com
“I support Irish Premature Babies because of the valuable information they provide for parents when we take our little ones home. Like all new parents, we have a whole new set of queries, worries and so on. The extra information that applies to premature babies is now readily available to us and is extremely helpful and necessary. Sometimes we have just small questions about premature babies that we can’t run by our friends with full term babies, or even sometimes local health centres and GPs. Using www.irishprematurebabies.com is a very effective way of exchanging information about premature babies, along with supporting and helping to fundraise for the NICU’s and SCBU’s around Ireland.”

Irish Heart Foundation
Message from Nicky Byrne:- “We all know someone who has had a heart attack and the symptoms are not always what you think. My dad had a pain in his lower stomach the day before he passed and we now know he was having a heart attack. At just 60 years old, he passed away in November 2009. My family want to spare other families the heartache and loss that we have gone through and if we can help save one more life through this campaign, it will be worth it.”
