The Wexford community and beyond have been rallying behind a young Wexford girl, Fiadh O’Connor, who is currently battling one of the most aggressive forms of cancer.
The family have now turned to GoFundMe to raise funds for Fiadh’s treatment with an aim of €375,000.
The potentially life saving treatment will take place in New York.
Davy Fitzgerald, along with the entire Wexford hurling squad, have been pushing for donations throughout the day via their social media channels.
Speaking with those involved with the Future For Fiadh campaign, Wexford Senior hurling manager Davy Fitzgerald noted that while we’re all looking forward to the game next weekend, there’s plenty more important things in life too:
“It’s funny, we’re playing a match against Galway next weekend. That’s going to be great, we’re going to go out and do our best. But, you know what, this is actually more important. This young girl got diagnosed a year ago with a rare form of children’s cancer. She has spent 150 days in hospital, so far. We need to realise that this young girl needs every opportunity — and we’re trying to raise over 375,000 to get her to America, to get her treatment, and to extend her life as much as possible,” he said.
If you’re in a position to donate, please do via the link below or by searching ‘Future For Fiadh’.
