Breakthrough for Cancer Research Pop -Up

Breakthrough for Cancer Research opened a pop-up shop in Dublin City Centre with goods on sale produced by cancer survivors and those living with cancer. Opened for one week on 4th February, World Cancer Day, 'The Shop That Nearly Wasn't' was located in Temple Bar. We were delighted to be involved with this very worthwhile cause and provided the pop-up location in The Library Project. As a reflection of ‘the fact that these achievements have only been made possible due to the result of ground-breaking cancer research’, the shop was staffed by people who have survived cancer. Under the motto 'Make more survivors', the aim of the shop was to raise funds and awareness for cancer research. Art, photographs and clothing were available for sale in the pop-up shop. 10-year-old Lily Burke from Cork, who was diagnosed with an acute blood cancer when she was just 20 months old, was the youngest contributor to the project.
