Richie and family Wish Upon A Star this Christmas

The Sheerin family from Derry/ Londonderry are making a very special wish this Christmas in support of local charity, Friends of the Cancer Centre.

Richie, along with his wife Lisa and son Aedan (5), are supporting Friends of the Cancer Centre’s Wish Upon A Star appeal, where for a donation of £10 people can dedicate a star to someone special on the charity’s virtual Christmas tree.  The Sheerin family are proudly supporting the appeal to say thanks for the care and support their family has received since Richie was diagnosed with a rare blood cancer called myeloma in 2018, when he was just 35 years old.  Richie embarked on an intensive treatment programme and throughout it all, he and his family have been supported by Friends of the Cancer Centre.  Today, Richie is sharing his story to help raise awareness and funds so the charity can help other families like his.
