Community Care in support of Tasha

Community Care in support of Tasha

The Christmas Fayres are in aid of Tasha Lynch, the young 24 year old woman who was struck down with Viral Meningitis, then Mitochondrial and 3 other serious conditions, which resulted in her losing her speech, ability to walk, eat and breath on her own.  

I met Tasha recently and was so moved by her severe conditions in one so young, I felt I had to do something and asked the Committee of our Association if we could help raise awareness and funds, they approved unanimously.

I am sure the campaign to raise awareness of Tasha’s plight will touch the hearts of so many people who will also want to help raise the €218,000 needed to send her to the USA for specialist treatment which could help improve her quality of life.   €32,000 has already been raised towards the goal of €250,000.

She does not receive financial benefits from the UK nor Spain.  I contacted the Consulate Alicante last week, they are investigating the situation including why she is not getting help from the Spanish Social Welfare system.   

Community Care Association Committee are dedicated to help and will organise more events during the coming weeks.   The Xmas Fayres are just the start, watch this space ok.
