We would like to extend a Huge Thank You to all who made The Ross McKelvey Fundraising Workshop for Suzanne Behan’s Sarcoma Treatment Fund such an amazing success today.

A special Thank You goes to The Seven Oaks Hotel who very generously provided us with a fantastic room for the event and gave excellent service throughout the day.

A very big Thank You to all who gave such generous prizes which helped raise even further funds for Suzanne. Thanks to John Hooton, Sam McCauleys, Fine Framers, Whites Camera Centre Kilkenny, Talbot Hotel and to those who provided other lovely prizes, a Coffee Machine, a Hamper, bottles of Whiskey and Wine given out.

Lastly but by no means least, a Huge, Huge Thank You has to go to the Amazing Ross McKelvey, who without his generous offer, today never would have happened. On such short notice, he very kindly gave up his day, travelling from Belfast to Carlow, to then giving us a wonderful Photoshop Editing Workshop. Skills he’s taken years to learn, shared out to all of us within hours. He completely surprised us with all the added gifts he gave today. A priceless once in a lifetime framed image went to one lucky person and Ross also provided so many mounted images and books as prizes, a lot of very happy attendees leaving. Thanks to you Ross, and to all who attended and supported, we have managed to raise an amazing €2,153.79 for Suzanne 🌟

Suzanne was unable to attend today as she was last minute brought in for an operation yesterday and we would all like to wish her a speedy recovery. Todays fundraiser will go along way to helping her get over to Boston as soon as possible for the specialist care she urgently needs.

To anyone who would like to donate to Suzanne, please see link below.

As a lot of you are aware, Photographer Suzanne Behan was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in 2014, high grade Stromal Sarcoma. Her condition, unfortunately, has not improved and she is currently facing surgery in a couple of weeks to remove 3 tumours from her liver. She is in urgent need of specialist advice in Boston as Irish doctors are not a 100% where to go from here and there is currently no Sarcoma Specialist in Ireland.

Suzanne has been accepted as a patient in Bostons leading Sarcoma Treatment Hospital, however, she has not got the funds to travel to this specialist appointment or for the treatment. She is now in a position of having to depend on the kindness of the Irish people to help her raise these much needed life saving funds.

There is a Go Fund Me page set up for Suzanne and upon sharing it on facebook, Ross McKelvey very kindly offered his services of a workshop to help raise funds for Suzanne on Saturday December 1st.

Places limited so booking is essential, they will be booked up fast!

For those who may not be able to attend but would like to donate to Suzanne’s Sarcoma Treatment Fund, you can do so directly in the link below:
