Let’s help Keri Sweeney purchase a defibrillator to get back playing football

first_imgA Go Fund Me page has been set up to raise money for the purchase of a defibrillator for the young Fanad footballer, Keri Sweeney.The Mulroy College student had to sit out six months and was unsure if she’d ever get back on the pitch after being diagnosed with a heart condition.Earlier this year, an MRI scan showed suggestions of perimyocarditis and it was confirmed that a virus had attacked her heart and caused pericarditis/myocarditis. Recently, Professor Kevin Walsh, at The Mater Private in Dublin, gave the Fanad teenager the green light to return – provided there is a defibrillator and trained personnel on site.“I can’t wait to get back,” Keri told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub in an interview published yesterday morning.Keri plays for Mulroy Academy and the Donegal Women’s League, while she also lines out for Gaeil Fhánada.Keri is also trying to raise awareness about the importance of defibrillators, and having trained personal to operate them, at sporting venues. She said: “So many people don’t know they have this. I was just lucky I found out.”To make a donation to help Keri purchase a defibrillator and get back playing, click here: https://www.gofundme.com/defibrillator-for-keri-sweeneyLet’s help Keri Sweeney purchase a defibrillator to get back playing football was last modified: September 21st, 2018 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:defibrillatorDonegal Women’s LeagueFanadKeri SweeneyMulroy Academylast_img
