Marc Owens Medical Fund Appeal

At 18 years of age, Marc Owens faces challenges and choices visited upon few so young. In September 2010, just as he was about to embark on his final year at Belvedere College S.J., Dublin, Marc was diagnosed with a Stage IV soft tissue sarcoma: a particularly aggressive and rare form of cancer, of which there are less than 200 known cases worldwide. In a matter of days, this fun loving, sports mad, happy-go-lucky boy had become a cancer patient with dismal prospects.

Marc’s primary care has been undertaken by Professor Desmond Carney and his team in the Mater Hospital. In December 2010, he was referred to the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, the only place in the world where he could receive the life saving treatment he requires. In February 2011, Marc underwent a 20 hour operation to remove more than 400 tumours from his body. In the months since then, there have been many complications, set backs and challenges; despite this, Marc is doing remarkably well. His determination to overcome his illness has been inspiring and he has shown a steely determination to ful?ll the promise he so defiantly carries within him. He is currently studying for a business degree at Dublin City University.

The Marc Owens Medical Fund was set up in April 2011 with a target of raising €1 million to help pay for Marc's on going and very expensive medical treatment. So far €450,000 has been raised: a stunning achievement in such a short time. Heartfelt and warm thanks to all who have supported this cause in so many different ways. A special thanks to those in the sporting world, both fans and players who supported and promoted our cause so enthusiastically over the last year.

Thought for Today

Set your sights high, the higher the better. Expect the most wonderful things to happen, not in the future but right now. Realize that nothing is too good. Allow absolutely nothing to hamper you or hold you up in any way.
