Ben Farrell, a five year old from Finglas in North Dublin, who had a rare form of cancer sadly passed away this morning at his home surrounded by his family.
He was diagnosed last Christmas with Wilms Tumour. His family had been campaigning and raising funds for special treatment in America.
They worked extremely hard and tried everything they could to help little Ben. A lot of media coverage and social media marketing was done to get the best for him.
As a mother I truly feel for the family, what they had to go through and what lays ahead. The next few days will be extremely difficult and exhausting. Hopefully they get the support they deserve.
Rest in peace Batman Ben, a beautiful angel. Thoughts are with the family and friends at this very tough time.
