The 18th August, 2015 marks the 25th Anniversary of David’s Father Michael, who suffered from chronic Kidney Failure. A Garda stationed in Abbeyleix, Co Laois between 1964 and 1990, Michael fund-raised for the IKA through the Laois Section of the IKA and An Garda Siochana.
Unfortunately, he did not benefit from the miracle of a Transplant but many do and David wants to raise awareness of the importance of carrying a donor card.
