Breakthrough Cancer Research (CHY19801) funds research programmes and infrastructure at Cork Cancer Research Centre.
Breakthrough exists to inspire and enable financial support from the community for exceptional research leading to more effective treatments for patients in Ireland and beyond. Monies raised are used to support focused research programmes, directly funding scientists and purchase laboratory consumables at Cork Cancer Research Centre. It will enhance facilities with state-of-the-art equipment and ensure that all cancer patients throughout Ireland have the opportunity to access the most up to date and effective treatment for their disease. The Doctors and Surgeons who work with us across Ireland do so at no cost and give of their time to our research voluntarily following in the ethos set out by our late founder Professor Gerald O'Sullivan. Working closely with healthcare professionals, expert scientists, individual and corporate donors and volunteers, Breakthrough facilitates the investment of the community in the future of cancer care.
There is hope and that hope is in research.
