Ciara Maguire

My name is Ciara I live in South Yorkshire and work full time for the NHS in critical care. I’m a mother to three children and when I do manage to steal some ‘me’ time I like to socialise with friends.

I first learnt about PACT and all the amazing work they do when my daughter aged ten was diagnosed with AML, a form of leukaemia. Everything from that time was a blur of medical professionals, statistics and drug regimes but PACT were there to hold my hand.

Once my daughter achieved remission the medics were less visible but PACT never faded in presence. When the team asked me to consider becoming a trustee I was overwhelmed and felt honoured. To this day I’m happy with my decision to proceed and become part of a wonderful charity.
