A generous Ballyncargy woman has decided that rather than worry about losing her hair to chemotherapy, a prospect that any woman would find devastating, she will be using the situation to help a lady who is currently out of work with a brain injury.
“I decided to put a bad thing into good in July,” said Mary Finnegan, who was upset to hear that Marie Quinn, the co-ordinator in Cara Phort – a place she frequents – was in hospital.
“Eight weeks ago, Marie had a bleed on the brain and went to Beamount Hospital and had surgery. She is now in Mullingar waiting for a rehab bed in Dun Laoghaire.”
