Culmore - Karolanne Dillon-June 2015

Karolanne Dillon has been a Care Assistant at Culmore Manor Care Home for over 15 years. On Sunday 31st May 2015, Karolanne took part in The Walled City Marathon in Londonderry. The motivation for her heroic test of stamina was Rhys.  Rhys, the step-son of Karolanne’s best friend and work colleague at Culmore, suffers from Neuroblastoma.  Rhys is currently receiving treatment for Neuroblastoma, he was diagnosed in October 2014 and has been fighting this terrible disease since then.  Karolanne intends to raise money for Clic Sergeant (Pauls House, Belfast).

Rhys is a typical outgoing 4 year old and also has a twin brother.  He is currently receiving treatment.  Pauls House has been a great support to the family, and to Rhys, without them life would be a lot more difficult.  When Rhys is there, he forgets for a short while about his illness, and lives like any other 4 year old at home with his parents and siblings.

Rhys and Karolanne would like to thank Care Circle Group / Larchwood Care (NI) Ltd for their contribution towards this
great cause. Helping even one child would be great. If anyone would like to contribute to this worthy cause, please send
your cheque made payable to “Clic Sargent” c/o Karolanne Dillon, Culmore Manor Care Home, 39 Culmore Road, Londonderry, BT48 8JB.
