Funding needed for life-saving DNA machine for cancer patients at CUH

Rugby legend Peter O’Mahony is urging people to get behind a massive fundraising drive for a hi-tech DNA machine that will help fast-track personalised life-saving therapies for cancer patients.

As the Covid-19 restrictions ease, the Munster and Ireland star was at Cork University Hospital (CUH) at the weekend to support staff from its pathology department as they set off on a 650km Ring of Munster challenge between CUH and UCC to raise funds for the near €500,000 cancer sequencing device.

The fundraising campaign for this machine was launched on May 8, to coincide with World Ovarian Cancer Day.

Anyone who would like to contribute to the fundraising can donate at, or by contacting the CUH Charity – 22 June 2020
