The Emma Byrne Foundation was established in memory of Emma Byrne, (nee Larkin), who passed away on the 23rd May 2016. Emma was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia, (AML) in November 2015 just days before her son’s 2nd birthday. Despite the devastating news to Emma and her family, she never once believed this disease would beat her and kept everyone going with her amazing smile and super positive outlook on life. The objective of The Emma Byrne Foundation is to bring something positive about, by raising funds to help people suffering with this disease and aid other causes that were close to Emma’s heart.
