Vicky in great form as she and friend visit Washington DC

High flyer: Vicky Phelan doing well, despite ongoing treatment for her cancer

Vicky Phelan has reunited with her Limerick friend for an “amazing” weekend in Washington DC.
The cervical cancer campaigner faced a tough goodbye when she told everyone she would be away for six months to take part in a clinical trial — but later revealed she’d actually be away for a year.
Taking to her Instagram, Vicky shared her fun-filled weekend with her followers and told how there was “no hospital visits and no vomiting”.
The mother-of-two enjoyed her tour around the city with her friend, as the two women explored the sights of Oldtown, Washington DC and Georgetown.
The Mooncoin native said: “I had the most amazing weekend! My friend,
Jen drove all the way from New York to spend the weekend with me.
“Jen visited me in Bethesda a couple of months ago but ended up turning around after landing at my apartment to drive me into the hospital and waited for hours in her car (no visitors allowed in the hospital) until I got pumped with fluids to drive me back home to my apartment and sit with me and make me tea until a bit if colour came back in my face before driving back to New York
“So, this time round there were no hospital visits and no vomiting…just two friends spending time together and seeing the sights of Oldtown, Washington DC and Georgetown.”
In January Vicky had travelled to Maryland in the US to take part in an immunotherapy clinical trial in the national Institute of Health.
