Carlow footballer Darragh Foley was on the show.

Dan from Co Laois has rare genetic neuromuscular disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) Type 1 and Scoliosis.

The life expectancy of an SMA type 1 child is 18-24 months.

He needs a ground breaking treatment called Zolgensma, which is currently only available in USA and costs 2.1 million dollars for a once off infusion.
