Donegal scientist Anne-Marie Baird PhD is hosting an event which aims to shine a light on lung cancer at Glenveagh National Park.
The event takes place on Saturday evening at 5:30pm when people are invited to meet at the visitor centre. Talks will take place in the AV room at 6pm, before leaving for the castle at 6:20pm. Refreshments will be served afterwards in The Lagoon, Termon.
Anne-Marie says: “The aims of this event are to increase lung cancer awareness, help tackle the stigma associated with the disease and raise funds for research.
“In Ireland, lung cancer kills more males than prostate cancer and more females than breast cancer, yet few are aware of this fact or of the symptoms associated with the disease.
“For the inaugural event last year – over 130 people attended and in excess of €2,500 euro was raised for the Target Lung Cancer campaign at St. James’s Hospital, Dublin.
“Please join us again this year on November 4th to ‘shine a light on lung cancer’.”
Attendees are asked to dress appropriately and bring a torch!
