CMRF Crumlin  The principal fundraising body for Our Lady's Children's Hospital, #Crumlin and The National Children's Research Centre

Give a big thumbs up to the little superstar, Megan O'Leary, who, after her MRI scan today, presented CMRF Crumlin with a cheque for €1010!

“My daughter, Megan O’Leary, is one in a million. She's a seven-year-old from Wicklow town. She came up with the idea of fundraising from her own experience of being sick. She hates getting her hair brushed so she wanted to get it cut. I told her about the Princess Trust and she said she’d donate her hair, but she didn’t have long enough hair at the time. She ended up getting sick last summer and we were in Crumlin. She was there for about two weeks and she saw little girls with no hair. She realised they must have had chemo, and she decided she wanted to donate her hair to those little girls. She wanted to hit the two birds with the one stone by donating the hair and fundraising for the hospital so that they could buy lifesaving equipment and help other children. Megan spent 7 months growing her hair out. So far she has raised €820 and she’s still going. She was very shy about (the fundraising), she didn’t want to tell people about it, so a lot of it was done on Facebook.
She’s most excited about handing the money over because she knows how important it is and where it’s going. She collected most of the money via iDonate. Every time someone would donate we’d tell her and she’d write a thank you message back. She’s very considerate like that and she’s very appreciative. Now that it’s cut, I don’t think she’s fully realised what a huge achievement it is, especially for someone so young. I’m so proud of how much empathy and compassion she has. She said she wanted to help other sick children who were sicker than she was.

Megan will be back in Our Lady's this week for her MRI scan and she's going to give the money to CMRF Crumlin then. Megan has an auto-inflammatory disease called Chronic Recurrent Multifocal Osteomyelitis, or CRMO. It's a rare condition with a one in a million chance of getting it. They'll take some of her blood to do the tests on it because she is one of the very few people diagnosed with it. She is so keen to get involved in the research. She said if her blood will stop other people getting it she'll happily donate it. She's got a kind heart!"

Happy Saint Patrick's Day to all of our wonderful donors, fundraisers, ambassadors, corporate partners and supporters, from everyone at CMRF Crumlin!

“We first started fundraising for CMRF Crumlin back in 1998. The first ever fundraising event was held in Ayrfield Community Centre, on St. Stephen’s Night. We arranged a dance, we used to call them ‘dances’ back then, and we raised 1,470 pounds – it was pounds back then. We arranged a few dances and then we decided to arrange sponsored swims instead because it can get the whole family involved. We’re in our fifteenth year of fundraising now, can you believe that? The reason we started fundraising for CMRF Crumlin was because a local parishioner, Maeve Killeen, had been diagnosed with leukaemia, a blood cancer, and had been treated in Our Lady’s Hospital when she was a child. Maeve is over 30 years of age now, she’s a qualified nurse who looks after adults who have intellectual challenges. She’s a remarkable woman. She’s engaged now and she has a great quality of life! She's the blonde lady on the right in this first photo. Her Dad, Joe, will be here this year for the swim and her Mam, Irene, is in Lourdes, praying for us all!
I have to say, every time we do a fundraiser we have a different set of challenges, different memories and different laughs. We actually have great craic. It takes time, effort and work, but everyone involved actually has a great laugh too.
The late Fr. Tom Colreavy was a great advocate for all fundraising ventures, but he especially enjoyed the St. Patrick’s Day Swim. Apart from promoting the swim, he had a way about him when it came to asking for sponsorship. He was kind and really understood what we were trying to achieve. On one occasion he even took a sponsorship card to a wedding which he celebrated, arriving home with €1,000. That must have been one hell of a wedding! This year our Saint Patrick's Day swim will take place this Saturday, the 17th March at midday on Portmarnock Strand. Everyone is welcome and we guarantee great fun for a great cause!"

Thanks so much to Mia Shepherd, Account Executive at the HSF Health Fund who presented a cheque grant of €2,700 on behalf of the Hospital Saturday Fund to @CMRF_Crumlin .The grant is for the Clinical Research Programme in the NCRC. #EverySickChildDeservesEveryChance

“The day after Rachel was born the doctors knew that something wasn’t right. She had to be rushed to neonatal for scans. Luckily we had time to get her by ambulance from Cork to Crumlin. When she arrived they were waiting for her with an incubator. We followed the ambulance and arrived at Nazareth ward at 1am in the morning. We didn’t know where we were or what was going on, to be honest! We stayed there for 21 nights in a row for Rachel's first surgery.
She needed everything checked because her condition can affect the brain, heart, lungs, kidneys and spine, and there could have been complications. She was very distressed over the weekend and the surgeons decided that she needed surgery to give her a colostomy bag. She was nine days old. We were completely in shock. We had never heard of the diagnosis or medical complications they were talking about, yet alone thought our baby would have these conditions!
We thought we’d never get her home. She has a big brother, James, who was nearly three at the time. We had ongoing support from the staff with follow up appointments in Crumlin. They were there for her and for us. They were always there. They were amazing. We trusted them completely. For each surgery she was on at least three painkillers and three antibiotics. She’s had three major bowel surgeries in total. We have constant contact with Crumlin.
Now, she’s on the road to recovery. She’s overcome the hurdles, like the big surgeries. She’s still smiling through it all.
My sister and I ran the Cork ladies mini marathon last year and we raised over 2,000 euro for CMRF Crumlin. It was our little way of giving back. It was a hugely emotional journey. It was exhausting but so rewarding.
If I had to say one thing to the staff at CMRF it's that they were amazing when we needed it most. We can never thank them enough. Because of the support CMRF gave to the hospital, the hospital were in turn able to give us amazing support. They created a whole new bowel system for Rachel and improved her quality of life. We're so grateful that CMRF Crumlin was there to support Rachel through her toughest journey." - Niamh Lee, Rachel Lee's mother, 7th March 2018.

Thanks so much to the Ireland rugby players who visited the sick children and their families at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin, last week. They presented signed jerseys to CMRF Crumlin, the fundraising body of Our Lady’s and the National Children’s Research Centre, to auction.

Thanks to our wonderful ambassador @robkearney for launching the @CMRF_Crumlin 'Show Your Heart' campaign today! Rob visits the sick children in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin throughout the year. 1 in 100 children in Ireland are born with a structural heart defect and 1 in 19 people in Ireland are carriers of the Cystic Fibrosis gene. 120,000 children will visit Our Lady’s hospital in a typical year. Speaking about this fundraising initiative Rob said “I’m delighted to be able to support CMRF Crumlin in their ‘Show Your Heart’ campaign. Everyone knows a child or a family directly impacted by the amazing work they do, providing vital supports and life-saving equipment for children in their darkest hour. There is nothing more vulnerable than a sick child and if I can help make a positive difference, I’m happy to help little soldiers through tough times. I love the fact that CMRF supports children who are sick today while striving to find cures for diseases and ways to offer better outcomes for sick children in the future. I’d encourage men and women to donate this Valentine’s Day to CMRF’s ‘Show Your Heart’ campaign.” #valentinesday #CMRFCrumlin #IrishRugby #AmazingAmbassador #RobKearney #GivingBack If you want to donate to the ‘Show Your Heart’ campaign check out our Twitter account on @CMRF_Crumlin

Check out one of our challenge fundraisers James Redmond..he recently shared some training pictures and window into his marathon preparation ;
The majority of my Training was done in Munich where I live but the runs had to be done wherever I had to travel so I had some in Lake Como, Bologna, Rome, Ireland and now my very last in Miami. I have done 56 runs in total for training and covered 441 miles over the past 14 weeks training. Now just time to fuel up on energy and Get er Done :) #fundraiser #cmrfamily #challengeyourself #runner

A massive, massive thank you to all our amazing supporters and fundraisers who walked, jogged, cycled, swam, jumped, danced, sang, fundraised and donated in 2017! Your efforts help to support tens of thousands of sick children and families in Ireland, in their time of need.
