Tralee Rotary Donates To Help Rose Bloom Campaign

Posted by


Sharon Hayes President of Tralee Rotary Club presents a cheque for €500 to Rose and Karen O’Flaherty. Also included is Dr Daniel Onyekere and Michael Slattery from Tralee Rotary.

TRALEE Rotary has helped out a young girl who is battling a serious illness.

Four year old Rose O’Flaherty from Ballymac lives with Type 1 Spinal Muscular Athrophy (SMA). Currently there is no cure for SMA, but there are treatments available to manage symptoms and reduce discomfort.

A group of family, friends and local community have set out to raise funds to help with her needs. The campaign has raised over €80,000 since it was launched back in June.

Tralee Rotary has donated €500 and its President Sharon Hayes handed it over to Rose and her mom, Karen, on Monday. For more information about the campaign check out
