'Truth coming out of her well to shame mankind' (1896)

We're rocking it for Claire.
She had a lung removed five years ago and the HSE can't and won't do the follow-up - so her heart is under her right armpit and facing the wrong way and her windpipe is progressively deteriorating.
Claire had her right lung removed in 2014 due to a congenital heart and lung disease - Pulmonary Atresia. In 2015 she was diagnosed with a rare complication called Post Pnuemonectomy Syndrome - this has caused the shift in windpipe and heart. This led to a further complication - Pulmonary Hypertension - in 2017 - this is a life limiting condition that is incurable and the end game for this disease is heart and lung transplant. Correction of PPS will fix this life limiting PH complication.
Lars Nolke will reposition the heart and organs and insert a prosthetic gel bag to fill the cavity left by the missing lung at the Mater Private or the Blackrock Clinic. He is highly skilled and concerned.
Claire's condition is deteriorating but she continues to reach out to those in need.
Representations to the Minister of Health, the Department of Health and the H.S.E. in 2017 failed.
In 2019 they are being repeated but to date continue to fail.
We, her friends and colleagues, are raising the necessary funds to enable the procedure to go ahead immediately by raising awareness, staging events and through gofundme.
Claire is 31.
So - come on everybody - and make it a party to mark the Summer of 2019
