Chloe Jenkins.

A FUNDRAISING dance will be held in The Manor Inn Killorglin this Saturday for a young girl battling cancer.

In March 2019, 14 month old Chloe Jenkins was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma; a very rare aggressive child cancer and one of the hardest cancers to cure. Chloe lives in Cork with mom, Deborah who hails from Killorglin and dad Gareth from Dublin.

Chloe immediately started intense chemotherapy in Crumlin followed by surgery in September 2019 when her left kidney and 85% of the tumour was removed.

She was fortunate to be accepted on a months specialised treatment plan in Germany in November 2019 and is now back home and attending Our Lady’s Hospital in Crumlin for further treatment.

The Six Nations Championship kicks off on Saturday and a framed signed 2019 Ireland Rugby World Cup Jersey was kindly donated by The Brand Geeks, Killorglin to be raffled on the night.

As well as that raffle, there is a separate monster raffle with local businesses donating spot prizes.

You can support Chloe’s Journey by donating €5 via the GoFundMe Page to be in with a chance to win this signed Ireland Rugby Jersey. The GoFundMe Link is

Register your name when you are submitting your €5 donation and your name will be entered into the draw.

Doors open from 9pm on the night with music from Ger Healy (The Singing Jarvey).
Tickets €10 – purchase in advance by contacting: Angela 0863205253 / 0876475234 Brendan or contact Chloe’s Journey directly on Facebook.

Chloe’s family formed a committee setting up ‘Chloe’s Journey’ to try to generate funds to help with Chloe’s ongoing care so her parents Deborah and Gareth can focus on her treatment and being by her side.

Funds raised from other events so far are helping alleviate some of the financial costs associated with caring for a seriously ill child as well as travel, accommodation and living expenses involved in multiple hospital stays and clinics.
