My Treatment Abroad Campaign

I live in Ireland which has one of the worst health services in Europe. I need to go abroad for urgent medical treatment for epilepsy that is also causing impaired cardiac function which puts me at an increased risk of life threatening SUDEP or stroke/TIA. There are roughly only 16 neurologists in the country and only two epilepsy units; one in Dublin and the other in Cork. The unit in Dublin has only four beds and neurologists are advising us to seek treatment abroad if at all possible. I've other complicating factors with sinusitus too that requires surgery. Some of my costs are covered by insurance but flights and accomodation are not. All funds raised in excess of my needs, which will be fully verified, will be placed into a trust to help others.
