About Us

The Emma Byrne Foundation was established in memory of Emma Byrne, (nee Larkin), who passed away on the 23rd May 2016. Emma was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Luekaemia, (AML) in November 2015 just days before her son’s 2nd birthday. Despite the devastating news to Emma and her family, she never once believed this disease would beat her and kept us all going with her amazing smile and super positive outlook on life.

The objective of The Emma Byrne Foundation is to turn a horrible negative into a massive positive in Emma’s name, by raising funds to help find a cure for this disease and aid other causes that were close to Emma’s heart.
