She hasn’t been well enough to travel home during that time but now that the news is better she has revealed plans to return to Carlow in October.

She will still have to travel back & forth to Texas every few months initially but her family say they have secured the best possible medical care in Ireland for her on her return.

Taking to Facebook Shan herself has thanked everyone who followed her journey and anyone who donated to help get her to the US for the care she needed.
