‘A Wonderful Daughter, Sister And Friend’



Laura Brennan, aged 26, from Co Clare, died at University Hospital Limerick, following her diagnosis of terminal cervical cancer at the age of 24.

Since her diagnosis in 2017, Laura was a HPV vaccine campaigner and worked with the HSE on their vaccine campaign.

Her family, in a statement released through the HSE last night, said:

“Laura was a light in the life of everyone who knew her; a wonderful daughter, sister and friend. We are lost without her.

“We are all incredibly proud of the work she did in the last 18 months to help protect other young women like herself from the cancer that has taken her life today.

“Laura used her voice, her generosity and her energy to help parents to make informed choices and protect their daughters from cervical cancer.

“She wanted to make a difference, and use the time that she had to right what she felt was a great wrong.”

    RIP Laura, as a stylish young woman who you wouldn’t think was seriously ill, she shocked a lot of families about the realities of cancer and encouraged them to get the vaccine, thereby saving countless lives.

    May a 100 more take up her cause.

    She was an inspiration and a powerhouse of positivity.

    Rest in Peace Laura.
