Huge fundraiser night planned for young Laois woman battling cancer

Roxy Phelan

A huge fundraising event is being held in Abbeyleix this weekend to help raise money for a young mother Roxy Phelan who has been going through treatment for cancer since 2017.

From Rathdowney, Roxy is the mother of two young boys, Cathal (10) and Setanta (5) and she is the loving wife of Jason.

Roxy’s treatment has reached a crossroads whereby she needs to have access to a Clinical Trial in order to continue her treatment.

Roxy’s Miracle Fundraiser night this Sunday, November 28, takes place in the Abbeyleix Manor Hotel from 8pm.

Tickets are €10 and music on the night will be provided by:

  • Aaron Phelan and Paddy McHugh
  • Brian and Fiachra
  • Beats Workin’
  • Jim and James Ring

There will be a door prize and tickets available on the night for the many spot prizes donated by the very generous business community around the environs of Abbeyleix and beyond who are never found wanting when asked to contribute to community causes like this.

This evening event will be preceded earlier in the day by a 5k run and/or walk around Abbeyleix Bog with Fr. Paddy, and a Glamathon in the Manor Hotel where Hairdressers, Barbers, Beauticans and makeup artists adn many more will provide services in exchange for donations to Roxy’s Miracle.

Also on Sunday, December 5, there is a Bake Sale and Craft Fair on in the outdoor dome area and indoor at Leeches Bar in Wolfhill. All donations will go also towards Roxy’s Miracle.

Clinical Trials and a diagnosis of terminal cancer has an astronomical cost so, it is hoped that this event in conjunction with other local events organised by the local community in Abbeyleix will help raise the required funds to help Roxy and her family.

Roxy’s Go Fundme Fundraising Page can be found here while further details on the evening music event are available here.
