And so the Story begins ….
In the beginning there was Mr. Liam Deasy, (a Multiple Sclerosis sufferer), and in his search for a better quality in living he found an improvement in his symptoms after using “Oxygen Chambers” in the U.K.
Mr. Deasy gathered around him, a small group of loyal friends and volunteers, and in 1997 a Committee was formed, to set about doing some “fundraising”.
It was from this action, that what we know today as “Bandon Hyperbaric Oxygen Centre” originated, the brainchild of one Mr. Liam Deasy.
Information into the History and Fundraising pertaining to B.H.O.C. is featured in other parts of the site along with photographic memories.
