Frances – Ceum air cheum

In 2016 Frances O’ Connell  took a major decision and decided to go to Mexico for a special HSCT stem cell treatment to help her cope with MS, a disease which she was diagnosed with at 26 years.  Knowing well that there were major risks and this treatment wasn’t without doubts and financial implications, deep down Frances was full of hope and was willing to take the risk,  even if it only helped to do simple things like taking her grandchildren for a walk.  We followed Frances step by step during and after her treatment in this series.
