Please meet Derval, Vinny, Rian, Corey and Daire McDonnell. Daire was born on the 27th of June 2019 and he has yet to come home from hospital. He has had five operations since he was born - three of which were major surgery.
Daire was born with multiple Atresia of the bowel. This has resulted in him having multiple operations and 100% tpn dependant since he was born. A side effect from the tpn is that it effects your liver - it has led to him being diagnosed with liver disease. His condition combined with other illnesses are life threatening. A hospital in Birmingham specialise in his condition and it is the hope to get him there for them to give him a bowel and liver transplant. He will need to be transferred to Birmingham by air ambulance.
He will need ongoing medical care which could see the family relocating to Birmingham while he is receiving medical treatment over there. Daire's brothers, Rian who is seven and Corey who is three desperately want him home with them.
This page is being set up by family to help raise much needed funds. The funds raised will be used for travel expenses for Daire and the family to get to Birmingham, medical expenses and future medical expenses. Its will also be used to adapt their home and a bedroom for Daire when he comes home to his family.
Any donations no matter how big or small will be greatly appreciated by the family. Please keep Daire in your thoughts. We hope he gets the treatment he needs in Birmingham and gets home with his family soon.
