This site will be dedicated to
the idea of people helping people.
This site is the result of a series of radio programmes that
described women breast cancer patients who had to go to Dublin
for treatment. Unfortunately, none of these women had relatives
in Dublin and they resided about 150 miles away from Dublin. So,
they had to get at least two or three different public transport
connections and finally arrive in Dublin-knowing no one and frequently
having booked a room in a Bed & Breakfast establishment.
They would have to get a taxi or a bus to the Treatment Centre
and then come back again alone to where they were staying. Usually
very sick and away from their friends etc. The plight of these
women touched the founder's heart with all of the emotions you
can expect. At that point, Brian decided he could make a difference
if he could do something about it.
Convinced that many people have a willingness to help, he realized
that someone would need to coordinate things by putting people
in touch with each other. That is the purpose of this website.
To let individuals volunteer to help and then put them in touch
with people who need their help.
