Sinn Féin MLAs Megan Fearon and Cathal Boylan took time to drop in to an event held in Stormont for the Oscar Knox Appeal. The 3 year old is fighting Neuroblastoma, a very aggressive cancer that affects babies and young children. Speaking to Newry Times, MLA Megan Fearon said, “I was pleased to offer my support for Oscar and his family. The response to his appeal has been amazing and I only hope that the fundraising enables little Oscar to successfully receive the specialist medical attention he requires and that he beats this dreadful disease.” Newry and Armagh colleague, Cathal Boylan echoed her sentiments and added, “I have been aware of Oscars appeal for some time. Like many others I was really disappointed that when he visited the USA recently for treatment that he was unable to proceed due to illness. “He is a little fighter and hopefully he will get a second chance to receive the potentially life-saving treatment in the near future. I wish him and his parents all the best and urge everyone to support this very worthy cause.”
