Fundraiser event for Charles LeMathieu, MBA Friday 7th February, 2020

Fundraiser event for Charles LeMathieu, MBA

Charles LeMahieu is an alumnus of the class of 2015 Smurfit MBA and is currently recovering from serious liver surgery - in 2017 he was diagnosed with liver cancer and thankfully is now cancer free following surgery and treatment. However, due to ongoing issues from the surgery, Charles is unfit to work and may be unable to work for a while longer given his condition. With this in mind a speaker event is being held Old Wesley RFC in Donnybrook on 26 February to raise funds to help out Charles, his wife Maebh and their twins Grace and Oscar.
