You got to put your head to it. You got to push through” are the wise words from young Tadgh O’Malley who kicked Hodgkins Lymphoma to the kerb. With resounding support from his wonderful parents & 3 brothers, one being his twin, Tadgh showed cancer who the real boss was. Yes it was scary but as he said himself, it's ok to be scared. One of Tadgh, and his families biggest supporters, was his amazing grandmother Mary, who was sadly diagnosed with breast cancer while Tadgh was going through treatment. She passed away only a few months later. If anyone knows about pushing through, this young man and his family do.
World Cancer Day is a day to raise awareness and bring people together to talk about and take action to help prevent and tackle cancer. Earlier @moscannail spoke to Rebecca Gorman, an Advocacy Officer from @IrishCancerSoc and to Tadhg O'Malley who has recovered from cancer. pic.twitter.com/RHaeB1XNAe— RTÉ news2day (@news2dayRTE) February 4, 2022
Tadgh and his brother Ferg were the ‘product tester’s' of our cosy slipper socks and he gives us lots of inspiration and ideas! Keep kicking ass Tadgh!
