'The person who inspires me most...'

'The person who inspires me the most is Dr Trisha Scanlan. Trisha is a paediatric oncologist which is a specialist doctor who treats children with cancer. She has used her gifts of courage, knowledge and right-judgment throughout her life to improve the lives of others. Dr Trish first travelled to Tanzania while studying medicine in UCD, when she came back she decided that she could do much more in Tanzania for children than she could in Ireland. She studied some more to become a pediatric oncologist and in 2006 she returned to the Ocean Road cancer institute in Dar es Salam, Tanzania. At that time, less than 100 new children attended the facility. Now, more than 500 new children are treated
