Former Derry City striker and Greencastle native Mark Farren has returned from Mexico after undergoing four-weeks of intensive treatment.
The footballing community rallied to Farren’s cause when it emerged an operation he had to remove a tumour had been unsuccessful.
It meant Farren had to raise £30,000 to undergo revolutionary treatment in Mexico to try and save his life.
The response from all over Ireland and beyond was overwhelming and over £40,000 was raised to enable Mark to go to a specialist clinic in Tijuana in Northern Mexico.
Farren was accompanied by his wife Terri-Louise and had gruelling treatment on the grade four brain tumour.
However, it is not yet known if the treatment has been a success or not as it is too early to tell.
They won’t know until they return to Mexico which they plan on doing at either the end of August or at the start of September.
His wife Terri-Louise has said the treatment has left Farren exhausted but has thanked everyone for the messages of support and everybody is praying the treatment will be a success.Tags:
