Carlow girl Shauntelle Tynan has made it to Texas Childrens Hospital after a break in the flooding allowed them to travel.
Shauntelle has been in the US for a few months where she is getting treatment for a rare form of cancer however the city has been hit by severe flooding from Hurricane Harvey.
Shes currently undergoing strong chemotherapy and needs an urgent blood transfusion but the river like floods was stopping them going anywhere.
They’ve taken to Facebook to say “Thanks to Friends of Friends for going to great lengths to get Shan to the hospital”
Leona Tynan, took to social media to Thank those who helped and supported them,
