A Dublin mother is facing the huge task of raising €300,000 in just four weeks for a groundbreaking vaccine trial in the US in an effort to save her daughter's life.
10 year old Robyn Smyth who has battled childhood cancer since the age of three, has just a 5% chance of survival.
Her mother Bernadette Dornan is, at the moment, waiting for scan results to determine if the cancer is in remission. In the meantime, she said she has renewed hope in a programme for young relapsed neuroblastoma patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York which Robyn will be eligible for if her scan results are clear.
Although she has already raised around €200,000, she still needs to find more than €300,000 in just four weeks to guarantee Robyn’s treatment at the hospital next month.
