Team Elizabeth Medical Fund

€92,272 of €250,000 goal

Raised by 1,245 people in 30 months
We are urgently fundraising so Elizabeth can get LIFE-SAVING spinal surgery in Istanbul, Turkey. Unfortunately time is not on Elizabeth's side and we have been told that without this LIFE-SAVING surgery Elizabeth will die. This is heartbreaking news for anyone to hear as we can not imagine life without Elizabeth.  
All treatment that Elizabeth got here in Ireland has failed. Her internal organs are being crushed by her spine  and she now requires a breathing machine while sleeping.
The surgery in Istanbul is Elizabeths only hope of surviving. The surgeons in Istanbul are optimistic that surgery will be a success and SAVE HER LIFE.
Elizabeth is one of the nicest, kindest, caring peogle you would ever meet who's life has been robbed from her for the last 10 years. These are years she will never get back. Elizabeth used to be an amazing Camogie player who had a dream to play for Dublin and was also a great musician. All these talents have been taken from her.
Despite this Elizabeth has a positive attitude and a great sense of humour. She is hopeful that surgery will be a success and SAVE HER LIFE. Elizabeth fights through everyday with courage and bravery despite being in horrendous neuropathic pain and unable to get out of bed. All Elizabeth wants is a chance at life but without this surgery she'll have no chance. 
The only place that can treat Elizabeths unique Spinal Injury is in Istanbul. The Acibadem Maslak Hospital is a centre of excellence for spinal surgery. Her surgeon in Istanbul,  Dr. Ahmet Alanay and his team are the top spinal consultants in the world and they are confident that the surgery will SAVE ELZABETHS LIFE. 
This surgery comes at a cost of €150000. 
We are pleading for people to donate to help save Elizabeths life. Any amount no matter how small will go towards this LIFE-SAVING surgery.

My daughter had to have 3 neurosurgeries in the states on her spine. She has a rare genetic condition and no doctor here had the expertise to treat her. We had to fundraise 140,000 as we got no help either from the state. I really wish you well in your campaign. It is a very difficult stressful process. No one should have to fundraise to save their life. If I can help in anyway please message me. Try to get some surgeon here to agree her aftercare as we have been left with no aftercare. She is doing so much better now back working and walking. She may well need more surgery again but it has been so worth it.
