Tracey has literally travelled around the world to help her little daughter Keri, 9, see again.
The little Buncrana schoolgirl underwent stem cell treatment in China last October in the hope of seeing.
But three months after the operation mum Tracy said she is still waiting for her daughter to see again.
“It has improved a little and she can see my face but I would love for her to see properly. That’s my one and only New Year wish,” said Tracey.
Tracey has been in touch with other parents whose children had stem cell treatment with Keri at the Beike Clinic in Qingdao.
One little girl from California is now even wearing glasses after her eyesight improved dramatically.
Tracey said she always knew it was a gamble but still holds out hope that Keri will see one day.
“We always said we would do whatever it takes to help Keri see. It’s just so frustrating that it has worked for other children and not for Keri.
“She is great and does not complain but she has never complained. She knew it was a gamble too.
“The doctors told us it may take a while or it may not help at all. We will just have to wait and see.
“We will give it a year and decide if to go for more treatment. It is a lot to put Keri through again but if we thought it would improve her sight then we would have to do it again,” said Tracey.
Tracey said she still prays that she will wake one morning and that Keri will come running into her bedroom telling her she can see properly.
“It would be a dream come through. People have been so good to us. They raised €40,000 to send us to China for the treatment and I would just love to be able to tell them Keri can see again.
“We will keep dreaming and hoping the treatment will kick in soon. Hope is all we have now,” she said.
