Summer Appeal: Meet The O' Toole Family

How do you tell your six-year-old child they have cancer? How do you prepare them for the fight that’s ahead and the difficult days that are coming?
There is no right answer. But when my daughter Róisín was diagnosed with cancer the answer for us was Barretstown.

What is Barretstown?

At Barretstown we run residential camps and programmes for children and their families affected by cancer and serious illness.

We offer a range of adventurous, fun and challenging activities which are supported behind the scenes by 24 hour on site medical and nursing care.
