Written 2 years ago by Rebecca Donnelly


In July 2014 6yr old Tommy Kelly from Birr was diagnosed with a very rare cancer known as ATRT and is only one of two children in Ireland with this cancer. Tommy fought hard under going an aggressive treatment of chemo, 31 rounds of radiotherapy plus stem cell transplant. Tommy went into remission much to the joy of his parents Lisa and Keith. However recently Tommys parents were given the heartbreaking news that all the cancer was back in a more aggressive form and there was no more treatment to help their little boy.
