Irishman with terminal cancer travels to Ukraine to deliver aid
The Independent says an Irishman living with terminal cancer has made his way from Co Cork to the Ukrainian border with a truck-load of aid.
64-year-old local man Don O’Leary, a well-known figure in Cork city, is suffering from terminal cancer.
But that did not stop him making the 2,500-kilometre journey to Shegyni on the Polish-Ukrainian border to bring urgent aid to those fleeing the war, after raising 24,000 euro from the local community.
Mr O’Leary is the director of the Cork Life Centre, which educates marginalised young people in the city, and says that he never had any doubts about making the journey, despite his diagnosis.
