Just a quick note to thank you for your support and let you know that the CUH Charity have reached their goal and have placed the order for the Ion Torrent Next Generation Sequencing Machine. Every penny we raised went towards this so I just wanted to let you know and thank you all again for your help and support.

The key changes the Ion Torrent Sequencer brings is that without this machine CUH have the capacity to test for one cancer at a time with a 2 week wait for results. This machine tests for multiple cancer types and gives same day results.

There is also a painting being done that will be digitized where the names of those who helped will be integrated into the picture, I’ve asked that Watergrasshill NS will be there.

Thanks again, and hopefully when this is over we can get back on Corrin and Carrauntoohill!!

P.S. We would also like to acknowledge the communities of Watergrasshill and Glenville and the trojan effort that everyone put in for this to happen.
