There will be a bucket collection at tonight’s game for the Robyn Smyth fund. We encourage both Bohemians and Shamrock Rovers supporters to donate generously.

Robyn is now eight years old. At the age of three, Robyn was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. A tumour was found in her chest and head,  and tests showed that the cancer had already spread to many parts of Robyn’s body.

This meant Robyn’s cancer was stage 4, this put her survival rate at 20% to 30%.

Robyn has since endured chemotherapy, surgery, stem cell transplant, radiotherapy and six months on tablets to try to kill any remaining cancer cells.


70%-80% of children diagnosed with Neuroblastoma will relapse. Robyn stayed in remission for 4-and-a-half years but on July 9th 2013, her parents the devastating news that Robyn had relapsed.

The treatment available in Ireland for children that relapse is very limited but there are cutting edge trial treatments available in hospitals in America and Europe. We are desperately trying to raise funds for these treatments – the treatments there start at €350,000 and can end up costing double this or more.

Please donate generously either at tonight’s game or on her website.
