After six years of fighting against a life threatening condition, Derry City FC Legend Mark Farren needs our help. Mark’s 3rd surgery took place a month ago and surgeons removed 80-90% of a tumour.
The invasive nature of the procedure has had a stunning effect on his speech and mobility. The biopsy which followed has indicated that the tumour is a Grade 4, meaning its highly aggressive.
Being no stranger to thinking outside the box, Mark is seeking medical assistance from an elite cancer centre in Germany. The 6 week treatment programme is his best chance of saving or at least prolonging his life.
This is the one goal with which Mark needs our help. Any contribution is greatly appreciated. Please see the fundraising events below with the many ways that you can help out. You can also donate directly online using this link TEAMFARREN
