Little Charlie's progress is news to warm all our hearts
Every now and again a story comes along that touches everyone's heart. This is particularly true of little Charlie Ferris from Ballinderry, who is undergoing treatment in Philadelphia for a spinal condition that could limit and even endanger his life.
His parents and family have had tremendous support from their community back home, and people have been raising money for the medical treatment and to help with extensive travel to the US.
To cap it all off, young Charlie is responding positively to the work of the doctors in America. That is, of course, even better news. The little boy and his family are in all our thoughts.
