Thank you for doing whatever it takes
Thank you so much for your incredible support. Your fundraising is making an enormous difference to some of Ireland’s sickest children. Your generosity has impacted on our ability to provide much needed resources to Our Lady's Children's Hospital Crumlin and the National Children's Research Centre (NCRC).
When Daniel was born he had a condition called congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM). “One of Daniel’s lungs hadn’t developed properly and air-filled cysts had developed in its place. So I spent the two and a half months before Daniel’s birth in Dublin because our baby would need to be close to Crumlin when he was born where they had the knowledge and experience to mind him.” Said Sara, Daniel’s mum.
“Daniel had the tumours removed in February 2018, when he was just over six weeks old. I was so scared for my tiny baby. It went so well and three weeks after that we were finally on our way home to Kerry with our beautiful, healthy little baby. The pathology results came back and it was type 1 non-malignant. It was the most enormous relief of my life. They got it all out during surgery and said there would be no further effects. He was in the clear. I was in shock. We had been through so much in those few months and I was so excited to get home to our family.
“I can’t thank the team at Crumlin enough for saving Daniel’s life. They will always hold a special place in our hearts. Always.” (Include two images of Daniel)
