Frank Wynn

The family of 4 year old Frank Wynne has set up a Go Fund Me account to help finance private therapy for his autism.

A Ballina family that has co-ordinated extensive fundraising for families of seriously ill children who must travel to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Dublin for medical treatment now finds itself in need of treatment funds, writes Orla Hearns.

Four-year-old Frank Wynn has just been diagnosed with level 3 autism and requires intense speech, language and behavioural therapy.

His mum, Margaret, has helped to co-ordinate several Walk 4 Families events locally for the Ronald McDonald House at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital.

The Wynns stayed at Ronald McDonald House throughout 2015 after Frank was born 17 weeks’ premature, weighing just 700 grams.

After 11 months he was finally discharged but has been readmitted since with pneumonia and for surgeries.

He has persevered with an endearing smile but his happiness is now being thwarted by the challenges his autism poses.

Frank’s family believe private treatment will afford him the best chance of learning to communicate and reaching his full potential.

They have set up Frank’s Fight Go Fund Me account and are hoping for a generous response from the people of Mayo.
