We’ve just completed a DM fundraising appeal for Our Lady’s Hospice and Care Services, Harold’s Cross and Blackrock. It features an extraordinary and courageous woman we interviewed, Susan O’Keeffe, who has Motor Neurone Disease. She can’t speak any more and has very limited mobility. Susan has generously offered to help the hospice raise crucially-needed funds. Her involvement has resulted in a very powerful and moving DM pack.
