Help Sean Rigney in Heart Surgery & Recovery

Donation protected
Sean Rigney, a talented rugby player from Ireland, recently made his mark on the rugby scene in Sydney, Australia, joining the Southern Districts Rugby Club for the prestigious Shute Shield Rugby competition. His impact on the team was immediate, promising a bright season ahead.

However, Sean's journey took an unexpected turn when he fell ill and was hospitalized. After a few days, the diagnosis was devastating: Staphylococcus aureus, commonly known as Golden Staph or MRSA had reached his heart. Sean's condition deteriorated rapidly, leading to the urgent need for open heart surgery.

Sean faces a challenging road to recovery, far from home and family. The financial strain of medical expenses, coupled with the inability to work during his illness and recovery is heartbreaking.

We're reaching out to the rugby community and beyond, asking for your support. Your donations will provide crucial assistance to Sean during this difficult time, helping cover medical costs and living expenses as he focuses on regaining his health.
