'If you can't donate a share would mean so much to us.
For many years, John was a sergeant in the Garda Underwater Unit. John risked his own safety for the public to assist in the search for missing persons and evidence. On several occasions during his career, John suffered life-threatening injuries in the line of duty.
John is now located at the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dunlaoighaire. For the rest of his life, John will require specialist care 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. He will also need specialist accommodation and equipment. If you can help in any way please do. We appreciate all the support. Thank you.'
