Raffle raises €34,400 to help purchase equipment to support stroke patients at The Mercy
A massive thank you to each and every one of our tremendous raffle ticket sellers and supporters – you helped us raise an amazing €34,400 to help us support patients at The Mercy Hospital dealing with a stroke.
“When a person has a stroke, they can feel as though their life has been turned upside down. Everyday activities such as walking, talking, eating and drinking can be a challenge for some stroke patients. It is a hugely traumatic time for the patient and their family. Here at The Mercy, we want to give our patients the best chances to overcome these difficulties and regain some kind of ‘normal life’. Funds raised from the 2017 raffle will help us to purchase the new Digital Swallowing Workstation that will enable us to test and assess patients with swallowing difficulties, to pin-point exactly where the difficulty lies, and develop a plan to get them eating and drinking safely again.”
– Finola Ferris, Senior Speech and Language Therapist at the Mercy University Hospital.
Watch out for Raffle 2017 coming up in September. You can support the patient’s attending The Mercy Hospital and be in with a chance to win fantastic cash prizes!
