For my wonderful dad

In memory of

Michael McEntee

My Story

On February 12th February 2017, my wonderful dad lost his 14 month battle against Mesothelioma, a rare but aggressive form of cancer which results from exposure to asbestos. This dreadful disease has ripped the hearts out of our family, our dad was the heart and soul of us. We had no idea what Mesothelioma was and how our dad, so full of life could have come into contact with it. We have since learned that it was in his place of work. If you would like to know more about Mesothelioma please visit this website. There has been very little research into this condition but I believe it will become more common in the coming years as asbestos was used in lots of industries. Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life 5k to raise money and save lives. 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now. Donating through this page is simple, fast and totally secure.
