The Leah Moran Stage School will stage a production of their latest show ‘Back 2 the Beat’ in Newbridge College on March 15 and 16 at 8pm to help raise funds for the Clodagh Daly Trust.
The school recently enjoyed a very successful run of their show ‘Back 2 the Beat’ in Dublin, where the show won various awards.
Tickets available from the school or The Nook on Station Road, and the show starts at 8pm. Admission: adults €15 and children €10.
The parents of 16-month-old Clodagh Daly, who is in remission from an aggressive cancer called neuroblastoma, need to raise another €75,000 to take part in a two year long clinical trial in the US. Clodagh is the baby daughter of Tammy from Newbridge and John, an instructor in the artillery school in the Curragh Camp, from Cork. “She is very well now thank God, “ said John.
“She was only five weeks old when she was diagnosed. The survival rates for a relapse is only 7 percent so it’s grim. The clinical trial will take place at Helen De Vos Children’s Hospital in Michigan and it can prevent a relapse and eradicate the cancer at stem cell level. It can kill it while it is lying dormant. We are going over in March and we need to raise €150,000.”
