Our sister Tina, and daughter of Marie and Declan Ronan, is almost seven years old. She has severe developmental delay. She does not have speech yet and cannot walk or support herself without assistance. She is fed mostly through a feeding tube. At the age of one years old, Tina was diagnosed with epilepsy. Since then, she has developed two movement disorders; Chorea and Dystonia, which interfere with her everyday life and is quite distressing for her. Although multiple tests have been administered, Tina’s condition is so rare that an overall diagnosis has not yet been confirmed.



Tina is a very happy girl and can communicate with her family in her own little way. She is becoming more aware of her surroundings and is improving in her strength each day.



Tina requires her own bedroom and bathroom which will be wheelchair accessible and will have a built-in hoist to lift her and enable her to be washed more safely. At present her room is not wheelchair accessible and the bathroom is not suitable for her needs. Tina has also outgrown her car seat and a new vehicle is mandatory which will allow her to sit in her wheelchair when travelling. It is our aim to raise funds so that the family home can be adapted for Tina’s requirements and for a suitable vehicle.



As Tina’s family, we are doing all we can to raise the funds we need, but we need a little help. Your support provided for Tina will help to ensure that she will receive the facilities that she requires and help her to live the life she so greatly deserves.
Please help to support Tina by attending one of the organised events, or by simply donating.



We are entirely grateful and appreciate every second you have taken to think of our special girl.



Contact Declan on 087-7612402 if you would like to hear more about Tina's story or for information regarding events.  



Thank you.

Thank you to everyone who donated to our bucket collection which took place at Corrib Oil Tuam, today and yesterday. We are overjoyed to announce that over the course of these two days €1,366 was raised for our campaign. We are truly grateful for all of your generous donations and are so thankful for each kind word that was said.

We would like to say a special thanks to Tommy and all the staff at Corrib Oil Tuam. Without all of your support this would not have been possible.

We are now one step closer to achieving our goal of providing Tina with the facilities she needs.

Thank you to everyone who has donated and kindly supported our campaign. We have received a number of separate donations which have a current total of €2,190.00 and are resting in Tina’s bank account. Therefore, along with the current funds from the Go Fund Me page we now have an overall current total of donations of €5,851.

With your generosity, we have combined funds we have raised ourselves with €1,100 of the funds from the campaign to purchase a vehicle suitable for our little girl. The response has been amazing and we really appreciate it!

The remaining funds we have raised at present will contribute to the extension of the house. Please continue to support our campaign so that we can raise the additional funds of €14,149.00, which will assist us to build Tina’s room as soon as we can.

Thank you.
