On Friday, 15th September 2023, the family and friends of David Cox are coming together to raise funds for Galway Hospice. The Friday game will raise funds for Hospice Care, including the future development of a new state-of-the-art hospice for the people of Galway.
David, who was originally from Galway City and spent many years as a valued and much-loved member of the Moycullen community, was a passionate advocate for the work of the Galway Hospice, and we are looking forward to honouring his memory at this event.
The event is a fun lunch with Michael Lyster as host and a panel of local and national GAA stars, both present and past.
The event promises to be a great afternoon with stories, craic and lively debate as well as other entertainment. We will also have some fantastic items for auction on the day.
The event will take place in the Galmont Hotel Galway, starting with a drinks reception at 1:00pm followed by lunch at 2:00pm.
Tables are €1,500 per table of ten people, and all funds raised will be going directly to the next development phase of the Galway Hospice.
The event is kindly sponsored by Aerogen. Established in Galway 25 years ago, Aerogen has grown to become the world leader in acute care aerosol drug delivery benefitting over 16 million patients worldwide.
We are delighted to be partnering with John Power and his team to support the important development of future Hospice services in the Galway region.
Galway Hospice provides three Specialist Palliative Care Services – our Inpatient Unit in Renmore, our Community Palliative Care Services and Palliative Day Care Service.
Palliative care is an approach to care that aims to improve the quality of life of people suffering from life-limiting illnesses, and to support the person and their family.
Traditionally, hospice care or palliative care was associated with care of patients with cancer, particularly at the end of their lives. Palliative care has changed completed in recent years, and this approach to care can be equally helpful to people who are newly-diagnosed with cancer or people who have other life-limiting conditions such as Dementia, Heart Failure, Motor Neurone Disease, etc.
Specialist Palliative Care is focused on managing complex symptoms using a team-based approach.
