Community fundraisers continue this July in support of Donegal girl TJ McDaid’s wish to walk.

Three-year-old TJ arrived back home to Ireland last week after another period of treatment in Budapest.

Born with severe spina bifida meningocele, TJ has been undergoing specialist physiotherapy treatment for the past year in order to walk.

TJ made more great progress over the past three weeks in Hungary, according to her mum Claire from Drumkeen.

“We are so proud of her after three weeks of hard work,” said Claire.

“TJ still needs a lot of intense therapy and we will return to Budapest in 12 weeks’ time.

“We would like to thank everyone for their continued support, TJ wouldn’t be doing what she is doing today without all the support at home.”

Each medical trip to the Peto Institute costs €12,000 on average, so fundraising is a priority to ensure TJ’s treatment can continue.

Plans are well underway for a Jumble Sale in aid of TJ’s Wish to Talk on 6th and 7th July (Saturday-Sunday) at St Patrick’s Hall Drumkeen (F93D726).

Come along to bag some bargains, enjoy family fun face-painting and mascots, or relax with some tea and coffee!  Bring the kids along on Saturday 6th July from 4.30-5.30pm to meet Mr TJ and enjoy some sweet treats!
