St James is the only hospital in Ireland to offer non-invasive keyhole heart surgery. Instead of open heart operations (that involve cutting open the chest cavity) they are able to performing life saving operations through a minor incision near the heart. For patients, this means they only have to spend days rather than weeks recovering from this procedure in hospital.
Skechers Ireland are helping St James Hospital to raise the €80,000 needed to afford a second keyhole machine. This second machine will mean many more patients across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland will benefit from this lifesaving surgery.
You can help by including a donation in your purchase from Skechers in Athlone Towncentre this October and Skechers Ireland will match donations up to €6,000!
