True dedication from mum Jo to fund her daughter's op
The story of a Co Antrim woman who raised £35,000 to fund a major operation for her daughter shows the lengths dedicated parents will go to give their children a better quality of life.
Jo Brown's daughter Mia had her curvature of the spine repaired in an operation in Turkey as the waiting list for the surgery in Northern Ireland was at least a year.
The family raised the money through a JustGiving page and again this shows the enormous generosity of people in the province. While the NHS is a marvellous institution, waiting lists for a wide range of conditions are lengthening, forcing people like Jo to explore alternative treatment options.
