10 Years of Supporting People with Brain Tumours in Ireland
Brain Tumour Ireland was founded in 2012 by a small group of people caring for a family member who was sadly lost to a Brain Tumour, Ronnie Fehily. Ronnie was a healthy 62-year-old woman, who was diagnosed with a Grade 4 Brain Tumour (GBM) and sadly passed away after a short illness in January 2012.
As a national organisation, our aim has been and continues to be a fight against the disease in her honour. Brain Tumour Ireland is the first nationwide organisation dedicated to brain tumour support and research in Ireland.
Through Brain Tumour Ireland (The Ronnie Fehily Foundation) we hope to continue to create a place where people can come for information, guidance and comfort. A place to learn what to expect and join a community that provides support.
Brain Tumour Ireland’s mission is to provide information and support to people with brain tumours, their carers/family/friends, as well as medical and other relevant professionals. We aim to raise awareness of brain tumours and advocate for Ireland to be a world leader in brain tumour research, diagnosis, treatment and care.
