Will You Sprinkle a Little Magic for children like Seán?
Barretstown is a place where families come to reignite joy, and to forget the troubles and pain that comes with serious childhood illness. One family who experienced this is the Richards, when in December 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.
Read Mebh's own words as she explains the impact of Seán's illness on their whole family, and how Barretstown was a light for them in the darkness.
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
