Then, at the most perfect time, along came Barretstown. And it sprinkled a little magic back into our lives... After all my family had been through, I can’t tell you how good it felt, to have something happy happen.Mebh Richards
Will You Sprinkle a Little Magic this Christmas?
Barretstown is a place where families come to reignite joy, and to forget the troubles and pain that comes with serious childhood illness. For most people during Christmas time, it is a time of great joy, but for others, it can suddenly become a nightmare. One family who experienced this is the Richards, when in Christmas 2019, their son Seán suddenly became seriously ill with Cancer. We would really appreciate it if you could read their story below to find out just why our work at Barretstown is so important.
