#FIGHTLIKEANDY / Andrea Broughan

Andrea Broughan - Andy is a young mother to two beautiful children who are her life. She is the heart and soul of her extended family and a hugely active part of the Portarlington community as well as a talented rugby player.

Andy developed meningitis and a blood clot back in November and was in a critical condition, however knowing Andy and her strength and determination, she fought back and defied the odds - Andy appeared to be back to her usual vibrant bubbly self when last Tuesday she had a headache and knew something wasn’t right. Since then Andy has been in Intensive Care in Portlaoise but was transferred to Beaumont yesterday for emergency life saving treatment. Andy had two major swellings on her Brain and also a Clot which needed to be removed and also suffered a stroke. Andy had major brain surgery last night. Thankfully she is now in the best place but she has endured so much along with her family & friends.

This go fund me page has been set up to help in the only way that we can at this time, to ease practical worries for her family. Funds will go towards the expense of Andy's medical care and to provide support for her partner Adam and their children. Her family are in Beaumont to be by her side as much as possible, fanancial burden is the last thing they need. Please give anything you can to help ease the stress they are enduring at this very difficult time.
