The Caroline Foundation
THE CAROLINE FOUNDATION was established in memory of Caroline Dwyer-Hickey who passed away on 25 March 2013 aged 35 after a nine year battle with cancer.
The mission and purpose of The Caroline Foundation is to raise money to fully fund an additional scientific researcher on the Cancer Clinical Research Trust (CCRT) team.
The hope and vision that inspires our endeavour is that through supporting cancer research, those patients who today are participants on the CCRT research programme may benefit from the on-going development of better treatments and at another level that the global cancer research project, of which CCRT is an integral player, will one day not only find a cure but will find a way of preventing cancer.
The committee of The Caroline Foundation has set itself a clear target to raise 1 million euro for The Caroline Foundation Cancer Research Fellowship.

About Pieta House
In 2003, our founder and former CEO, Joan Freeman, a practising psychologist, closed down her own counselling business and dedicated her time to finding out how she could help people who were suicidal - what would be beneficial to them and help them get through their dark time. After three years of research, she opened up Pieta House, which quickly became a respected and recognised service for those who were suicidal.
