“Professor Gerry o’Sullivan – Surgeon of Renown – Legacy of Hope” Part 1 on C103 Sunday at 7pm

We thank Presenter supreme, John Greene, for the following advance notice regarding his upcoming 7pm Sunday radio programme (22nd Jan. 2017) on C103 (S.R.):

From a farming background in the rural village of Caheragh, he went on to become an outstanding cancer surgeon and founder of the Cork Cancer Research Centre. The sad irony is that the disease he spent almost a lifetime operating on and attempting to find cures for, seemed to take it’s revenge on him in the end.

On ‘Where the road takes me’, and over the course of three programmes, we look at the life and times, the career and many achievements of the larger than life Professor Gerry o’Sullivan, who passed away in February of 2012.

In Caheragh we meet his brothers Con and Donal. We meet the people behind the Threshing festival in the village who have raised one million euro so far, for a cause that one of their favourite sons passionately believed in. And we pay a visit to the Amenity Science Park in the village which honours the memory of a world renowned Cancer Researcher and surgeon.

We spend a day with the scientists and investigators at the Cork Cancer Research Centre, which was founded by Gerry o’Sullivan. Now in a state of the art facility, it houses clinicians and researchers under one roof, where new cancer treatments are brought to trial quicker.
