Hi guys! I am trying to get word out about my neighbour Cian who is 4 years old and needs a lung transplant asap. He is battling a severe disease that has no cure. he is running out of time and the family have brought him from Ireland to Boston to try and get him assessed for the transplant. The family have just been given the devastating news that they have to raise over $1 million to get the transplant, Which has to be paid upfront.
Cian went completely blind when he was one years old then shortly after was told his bone marrow was failing. In March 2013 Cian had a bone marrow transplant. This was successful. In January this year Cian went to hospital as he was low in energy and low oxygen saturation counts. He spent five weeks in hospital until he was diagnosed with microscopic pulmonary avms. Doctors are not sure if this new problem is caused as a side effect of his bone marrow transplant or his underlying condition. This is very serious for Cian. His doctors recently gave us the devastating news that Cian has only months to live.
