Limerick Woman Recovering from Breast Cancer Reaches Number 1 in Irish Single Charts!

All Monies Raised from the Sale of the Single will go Limerick Cancer Charity

Friday 13th March 2009.

A Limerick woman currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer has reached number One in the Irish Single Charts, it was announced today.  The single, Do you Believe is written by Philip Scanlon and recorded by Julie-Anne Dineen in an effort to show other women there is life during and after this disease. The song was recorded on the day after her second course of chemotherapy for breast cancer.  All monies raised from the sale of the single and the download will go to the Mid Western Cancer Foundation, based in Limerick.

Singer Julie-Anne Dineen couldn’t believe it when she heard that she had reached Number 1 in the charts published today: "I’m delighted. I can't get over the goodness of people, everybody wants to be involved and help out and we have had fantastic support, especially from the people of Limerick” she added.

“This song was recorded in memory of all the daughters, mothers, sisters, grandmothers and friends that have died from breast cancer. My message is that women should be breast aware and should contact their GPs if they have any concerns. Screening and early detection save lives. And women everywhere should understand that there is life and hope before cancer, during cancer treatment and afterwards.”

“I am hoping we keep the song at number 1 until Mother’s Day on 22nd March 2009. It would make a perfect Mothers' Day gift and all monies raised from the sale of the song go to the Mid Western Cancer Foundation” she added.

“Cancer and its treatment brings great difficulty and worry.  But it also brings out the very best in people in terms of friendship, love, mutual support and the recognition of the things that are important and the things that are not.  This project is a celebration of that discovery.”
