Saoirses Summer Fest

In December 2019 at the age of 7 Saoírse was diagnosed with a rare Osteosarcoma tumour in her tibia. This is a life threatening tumour which will require Saoírse to have months of intense chemotherapy in Crumlin. Not only has Saoírse to endure this treatment but she also underwent life changing surgery last month for an amputation to her right leg.

This has obviously come as a massive shock to her parents, family and large circle of friends and neighbours. 

Saoírse is a very happy energetic fun and charismatic child. She is very musically talented and plays the harp and sings. Up to her diagnosis she loved nothing more then dancing to her hearts content. Saoírse also enjoyed playing camogie for her local club Killimordaly in County Galway. She is a very affectionate child and is completely obsessed with her little baby sister who was only 11 months at the time of her diagnosis.

The monies raised will be shared between Saoirse and the associated places that have helped her along during her long road to recovery. These are;

The Irish Cancer Society,
Crumlin Children’s Hospital (St John’s Ward),
Hand in Hand, Aoibheann’s Pink Tie
St Bernadette’s ward UHG.
