Here's why it's a wonderful cause - Baby Dan Donoher
On Dec 6, 2019, baby Dan Donoher, the son of Laois GAA players Niall and Aisling Donoher, was diagnosed with a severe type 1 SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) condition, an extremely rare and progressive illness, damaging the muscles used for swallowing, speaking and breathing.
Up until recently, there was no cure. However, a groundbreaking treatment called Zolgensmahas has become available in America. It costs $2.125 million, making it the most expensive treatment in the world.
Zolgensma can be a one-time, life-saving treatment that allows for children with SMA to function in ways unimaginable just a few years ago.
