Welcome

27 Ella in tunnel in playground 3 years
Ella (Doyle) is our 3 year old little girl. We are her parents Nicola Dervan from Killimor, Co. Galway and Simon Doyle from Arklow, Co. Wicklow and she has a little sister called Millie. We live in Rathfarnham in Dublin. Ella is happy, bright, mischievous and full of life. She loves dancing, singing, and story time. However, Ella has Cerebral Palsy.

Ella’s Cerebral Palsy causes tightness in the muscles of her legs which means that she cannot walk or stand independently. Ella walks with a walking frame but as time progresses Ella will require a wheelchair.

Ella has been offered a life changing opportunity to have SDR surgery in the USA which will enable her to walk independently. We are hoping to make this dream become a reality by fundraising €150,000 which will fund the surgery and the required intensive 2 year physiotherapy program. We have created a trust and appointed independent trustees to administer the fund. We would really appreciate your support and to learn more about Ella and the surgery please go to the ‘about Ella’ page.
