Noah’s Journey


Noah Sullivan (top) is a four-year-old boy from Waterford with Cerebral Palsy.

Last year, Noah was accepted for selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) surgery – a procedure that treats muscle spasticity – in the USA costing €100,000.

David and Debbie Sullivan, Noah’s parents, write:

We wish to thank the media and the people of Waterford and beyond for their warm and generous support of the campaign to fund Noah’ wish to walk which has now achieved funds of 100K which allow our brave little son Noah travel to St Louis, USA, in October for life altering surgery to help him walk and fund his three years post operative physiotherapy.

Since the Noah’s wish to walk campaign was launched in January this year the people of Waterford and beyond have wholeheartedly gotten behind us and for that support we will be eternally grateful.

Above is a song & video featuring Noah’s fundraising journey by the amazing Sean Kinsella & Jennifer Hall.

Some day soon our son Noah will walk down the streets of Waterford and make us all proud of the opportunity we have collectively afforded him.

From the bottom of our hearts we say thank you.
