As six-year-old Leah Taaffe continues her treatment for a rare form of brain cancer, the fund raising campaign continues to draw huge support.

The six year-old Robertstown girl is on her last week of radiation treatment at St. Luke’s Hospital in Dublin. She previously underwent chemotherapy at Crumlin Hospital before a team of doctors from London took over the supervision of her case.

This week there are a number of up coming events. On June 22 there will be a charity football match in Galway in aid of the fund. The Kildare natives in Australia are also organising a campaign. Also on June 22, there will be a Dip in the Nip for Princess Leah and Lily Mae at a secret location in county Wicklow. Ladies only!

Leah’s aunt, Kym Kelly informed the Leader that the Clane GAA Darts Night with Dean Winstanly was a great success. Meanwhile, Brendan Mcglynn, aged 8, dyed his hair red last weekend for the Princess Leah fund. He raised an impressive €616.

People can make a donation by logging on to www.idonate.ie/princessleahfund. For further information, log on to the Facebook page Princess Leah Fund or email kymkellymusic@gmail.com If Leah is unable to undergo further treatment, all funds raised will be donated to the children’s cancer unit at Crumlin Hospital.
