Aoife Sage, a 14-year-old girl from Sixmilebridge, Co. Clare needs your help. 

Aoife suffers from the debilitating genetic condition Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) that leaves her joints liable to dislocation and she suffers constant pain. 

Aoife a huge amount of pain and has even caused episodes of temporary paralysis from the neck down, risking both permanent paralysis and possibly death.

Most days Aoife is either bedbound or housebound and relying on the care of her parents, Susan and Declan.

To take her out of immediate danger, the only option for Aoife is to undergo lifesaving surgery in Barcelona.

The family have to raise the money as the specialist surgery can only be performed in the private clinic in Barcelona.
