Episode 12 – The Roche Sisters

On this week’s episode I sit down with the Roche sisters, three sisters who have a very special bond, their story is a story of strength, positivity and selflessness.

These woman are power houses, they run a hugely successful business and family whilst overcoming the hurdles life has thrown at them.

A start up business nearly abandoned when at the same time middle sister Karla is diagnosed for the second time with Cancer , Karla’s prognosis this time however is 6 months to live or a stem cell transplant, with her two sisters stepping up in the hope they are a match.

We chat through the early years as sisters and the carry on that lead to Karla nearly being expelled from school right through to the horror of her first diagnosis and the first thoughts that went through her head.

We talk about her leaving it all behind for Spain with her boyfriend Anto and her beloved dogs, we talk about the gruelling flight the others had to take to break the bad news.

We chat through the journey of Katie being a match and Kristine holding down the fort, maintaining the business to keep them all afloat.

This story cannot be told without the glue that holds it together their Mammy Gina, I am in complete awe at her strength and in their own words the girls would be lost without her. This truly is a lovely story of family and we hope you enjoy.
