Charity cycle through Ballyjamesduff to raise funds for Dublin toddler

21 cyclists will be whizzing through Cavan on a 375 km charity cycle tomorrow [Friday May 17] stopping in Ballyjamesduff in a fundraising effort to raise €375,000 for a Dublin toddler with neuroblastoma, a cancer of the central nervous system,
In December 2018, 14 month old Tessa Garry from Castleknock in Dublin was diagnosed with stage 4, high risk neuroblastoma. The most life-threatening form of cancer for children.
Tessa started chemotherapy in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Crumlin last January, and she is receiving superb care but she has a long battle ahead of her with several medical mountains to climb. Relapse is a huge concern with neuroblastoma, and sadly, when it occurs, survival rates are very low. Tessa’s parents, friends and family have now started a fundraising campaign to allow her to access treatment in America to help to prevent a relapse once she has completed her treatment in Ireland.
Tessa’s uncle Alan is a member of the Blanch Wheelies cycling club, and the Wheelies are undertaking a 375km cycle passing through the four provinces on Friday May 17, to help raise money for Tessa’s campaign.
They will be stopping in Skelly’s Deli in Ballyjamesduff on Friday morning at approximately 8.30 am for their breakfast, so keep an eye out for them in red and white. They would be very grateful for any donations and support received along their route.
If you miss them, you can donate to the campaign at www.gofundme.com/help-tessa-be-cancer-free
