Rosie & Jim recently sponsored a Gold Classic in aid of There's Something About Mary O. The fundraiser was to help Mary and her family access the best possible cancer treatment not available in Northern Ireland.

Mary is a vibrant member of the Cullyhanna community in Armagh. Both herself and her husband Gerard are great characters and well loved within their local communities. They have regularly fundraised for charitable organisations and therefore their family and friends have set up this non-profit organisation.

In May 2015 Mary was diagnosed on her 42nd birthday with Breast Cancer. Mary remained extremely positive throughout her chemotherapy and surgery, many call her an inspiration! Mary was just returning to normality when again on her next birthday she received the dreaded news that her cancer had spread to her liver. Mary is currently receiving eighteen weeks of full body chemotherapy and long term monoclonal antibody treatment. Unfortunately side effects such as extreme tiredness, mouth ulcers, nausea and hair loss are now taking its toll on Mary and her family.

Mary and Gerard are parents to six children ranging from four up to thirteen years. However they are no strangers to heartache after losing their baby to a congenital heart defect in 2006. Baby Eoin joined the other angels in heaven just after two days old. Throughout all this heartache the couple are hugely positive and are truly inspirational people. They are best friends and have recently celebrated their 21st Wedding Anniversary.

This Young, Vibrant Lady deserves the best of care and treatment to return her to better, if not long term improved health. The fundraising will help to cover costs of alternative remedies and further treatment unavailable locally and not routinely covered by NHS.

Rosie & Jim are delighted to have the opportunity to sponsor such a great cause.
