Lynch’s Pharmacy in Castleisland is involved in the Lollipop fundraising and awareness days on this Friday and Saturday. The campaign is in aid of awareness and research and the proceeds will go to the Oesophageal Cancer Fund. An emailed note from Aileen Lynch expressed a wish that we could help in making people aware of the fact.
Transition Year Students
“Symptom recognition in Oesophageal Cancer is as important as the fundraising – as it is with most forms of cancer. There will be promoters throughout the town and we hope to enlist the help of some of the local transition year students to help with the campaign. Lollipops will be available in some of the shops in town and anyone with queries on the campaign can ring us here at: 066 71 42479,” said Aileen.

Lollipop Day – A Little Lolly Goes a Long Way
The aim of the Oesophageal Cancer Fund (OCF) is to raise awareness of the symptoms of Oesophageal Cancer and fund medical research into the disease.
Many people in Ireland are unaware of the symptoms of Oesophageal Cancer until it affects themselves or their family directly. Early detection of the disease can make a life saving difference.
All donations made to OCF fund awareness raising campaigns and research into the disease. The campaign relies on public support to turn Oesophageal Cancer into a treatable illness.
Protect yourself and your family from Oesophageal Cancer by knowing these Three Key Warning Signs: Constant Hiccups / Regular Heartburn / Difficulty Swallowing. Ask your GP for an endoscopy if any of these symptoms persist.
