VIDEO: Plea to help buy vital medical chair for Ciara





GENEROUS donations from the public have helped Wilmcote teenager Ciara Barry receive vital life enhancing medical treatment but £2,200 is still needed for a traction chair in order for Ciara to continue to make progress.

Ciara, aged 14, suffers from Rett Syndrome a rare condition that affects the development of the brain. It can cause severe physical and mental disability that begins in early childhood.

She is currently being treated at a special clinic in Miami with her mum Samantha by her side. The visit to America was made possible thanks to public donations which totalled £15,000.

Ciara is making good progress but a key component of the project is a traction chair and additional support braces which cost £2,200 and will need to be shipped to Britain from America; Ciara is due to fly home with her mum this Sunday, 22nd May.

A close family friend, here in south Warwickshire, has appealed to people to help Ciara's cause so that she can continue her treatment at home.
