Cervical Cancer Campaigner Vicky Phelan has passed away

Cervical Cancer campaigner Vicky Phelan has passed. The words the whole country knew were coming but no one wanted to believe.

Less than 3 weeks since Vicky paid tribute to fellow cervical cancer campaigner Lyndsey Bennett, she too has succumbed to this hideous illness. Vicky passed away in the early hours of this morning at Milford Hospice in Limerick after being diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2014. Vicky was a fighter and fought every inch of the way. For herself, her children and for the many Irish women after her that will be saved because of her strength and determination.

Liam Harbison, Director of Sport Ireland paid tribute on his twitter:

A sad day for our nation. You soothed us when our sister passed with Cervical cancer despite your own battle. Your strength means many others won’t have to go through the same battle in the future. Vicky Phelan, may you rest in Peace.

RIP Vicky Phelan
