Galway Football Association Launches Inaugural O35’s Giving Back Charity Match

Galway Football Association has launched their inaugural O35’s GIVING BACK Charity Match that will take place on Thursday the 21st of September in Eamonn Deacy Park at 7:30pm.

With deep roots in communities across Galway, the GFA and the Over 35’s have chosen to support James Hasting as part of his James Fights Back campaign for their inaugural match.

James who is 41 was recently diagnosed with stage four cholangiocarcinoma, which is a rare and aggressive cancer that forms in the bile ducts.

As a husband and father to three young boys, James is determined to beat this diagnosis, however, the journey is not an easy one and James is currently having to travel abroad to receive lifesaving immunotherapy treatment. James has also made it his life’s mission to ensure no one else faces the battles he has faced regarding access to information and treatment.
