Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle for Breakthrough Cancer Research

People believe that the worst day they or a loved one will have, is hearing a cancer diagnosis. However, this is not the worst day. The worst day is when the doctor tells them there is no hope. They have tried everything. There is nothing more they can do. The cure for their cancer does not exist.

Breakthrough Cancer Research (Breakthrough) is working tirelessly to make sure our family, friends and communities across Ireland have access to the best treatments for cancer and never have to hear the words, ‘there is no hope’.

Breakthrough is an Irish cancer charity, based in Cork, focused on research and education with a particular focus on cancers with a poor prognosis, such as ovarian, lung, malignant melanoma, pancreatic and oesophageal. We facilitate excellence in research by bringing patients, scientists and clinicians together to collaborate with the aim of discovering and developing new effective treatments and cures for patients in Ireland, Europe and Internationally. This approach has already led to 8 new discoveries being taken all the way from the lab to patient study or clinical trial. With your help we can continue this ground-breaking work, so no family ever has, to hear ‘there’s nothing left to try’.
