Limerick Teams Up For Theo

Limerick mother Eleanor Murnane set up a GoFundMe page for her three-year-old son who was diagnosed with stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma cancer.

Eleanor was concerned when she found a lump in her son’s lower abdomen, she also noticed his belly was quite swollen.

University Hospital Limerick later located a large tumour.

Theo was diagnosed with stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma cancer which had spread to his bones and his scalp.  

The tumour has since been removed but with this type of cancer, the chance of recurrence is extremely high.

Eleanor set up a charity fundraiser titled Team Up For Theo with the goal to raise funds for a future treatment for Theo.  

Her original target is €375,000.

Eleanor said: ‘‘we raised €369,582, and the target is €375,000, we are on target to get Theo to New York – everyone has been amazing’’

Limerick hurling stars Dan and Tom Morrisey took time out of their All-Ireland final preparation to wish Theo well, and offered a signed Limerick jersey to be raffled.

Should the fundraising target be met, Theo will take part in a clinical trial in Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital Cancer Centre in New York.

This treatment could help prevent the cancer from recurring and be life-changing for Theo, as it raises his chances of survival.

Limerick Voice send best wishes to Theo and his mother.
