Patient Story -Vivian Golding

Our neurological team has over 1800 admissions per year treating people with a range of brain diseases including epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinsons, and Alzheimer’s. They are seeking donations to open a new Brain Disease Centre at St James’s to implement a new model for patient care in neurological disease.
Target Lung Cancer Appeal
Lung cancer is the greatest cause of cancer deaths in Ireland. The rate of increase in lung cancer is now greater in women than men, in Ireland. Target Lung Cancer (TLC) appeal is seeking donations for lung cancer patient support, diagnostics and research at St. James’s Hospital. Neven Maguire is our fantastic Ambassador for TLC.
Making a Monthly Donation
There are so many great reasons to make a monthly donation to St James’s Hospital. By giving a manageable amount each month, your support continues to grow and allows us to make a difference to our patients.
Up-date from our Small Grants Programme
St James’s Hospital staff members update us on their projects and initiatives from the 2016/2017 Small Grants Competition. Each year, due to donations we receive, we run a competition with staff to award small grants of up to €2,500 each. It is a very popular scheme and we try to help as many initiatives as possible.
