Fundraising campaign for young Clonmel man

A fundraising campaign has been set up for a young Clonmel man Evan Hickey in an effort to raise money to send him to the US for surgery on a cyst in his brain.

Evan is just 24 years old and last year during a trip to Canada he began to feel unwell after following tests, the cyst was discovered.

He needs to raise approximately 170,000 Euro for surgery to have the 22 millimetre cyst removed from the centre of his brain.

The operation would be carried out in the US as the technology here isn’t advanced enough yet.

Speaking on Tipp Today Evan said all going well he will be able to have the surgery in a matter of months.
