Vera Twomey - Mother of Child with Dravets Syndrome

Vera Twomey - Mother of Child with Dravets Syndrome

Harrowing footage of Cork 6-year-old Ava Twomey having seizure was broadcast on TV3 last Tuesday. Her mother Vera decided to make it public in a bid to get her treatment approved. Ava has a rare condition called Dravets Syndrome that can see her suffer as many as 20 debilitating seizures a day, sometimes lasting up to half an hour. Vera came into studio this afternoon to talk to Ray about her meeting with Minister for Health Simon Harris.

The Operation Transformation Finale

                                  

Tonight’s the night! The Grand Finale of this year’s Operation Transformation kicks off at 7 o’clock on RTE One television and continues after Fair City, at half eight. The five leaders have spent eight weeks following a strict exercise and nutrition plan and this evening, they’ll undergo a makeover for the big reveal in front of friends and family. 

We’re delighted to be joined in studio this afternoon by Sean Daly from Clondalkin in Dublin, Yvonne Keenan-Ross from Carlingford, Co. Louth, Maireád Redmond from New Ross in Wexford and Chris Mc Elligott from Dunshaughlin Co, Meath
