Limerick supports a fundraiser for the family of brave Limerick boy Noah Quish as he embarks on a journey of recovery following brain surgery
A Gofundme page has been shared to support inspirational Limerick boy Noah Quish as he embarks on a journey of recovery following a series of brain surgeries due to meningitis complications.
Noah Quish has begun his journey of recovery after undergoing his fourth brain surgery today, August 9, aimed at addressing complications stemming from his initial surgery, has introduced a new set of obstacles that Noah and his medical team are courageously navigating.
Noah’s initial surgery was followed by unforeseen complications, leading to the need for a redo and during this second operation, medical professionals had to temporarily remove his shunt to facilitate healing. The procedure was necessary due to a buildup of fluid on Noah’s brain, which “was leaking out of the wound”.
Writing on the Limerick’s Little Blue Hero Noah Quish Facebook page, a family friend said, “I’m posting on behalf of Noah’s parents as his family need to be by bedside as he is a very sick boy at the moment. Una asked me to let you all know as she can’t reply to messages for now but wants to thank you all for your kind words.
“Noah has a form of meningitis and the next few days are going to be very tough as he has to have more surgery, maybe 3 more so they are looking at a long and scary few weeks in hospital. We ask for prayers for Noah and his family at this hard time. I will put the Gofundme link below as you can imagine it’s not easy as both Una and John are now off work for the foreseeable. Any help would be appreciated.”
In November 2021 Noah’s mum, Una was named as Limerick Netwatch Carer of the Year, and Little Noah has captured the hearts of Limerick over the years. In 2019, he became an honorary member of the Gardaí thanks to the Little Blue Heroes Foundation, a Garda Siochana-run charity that helps seriously ill children.
The Facebook page published an update today, August 9, explaining Noah had to undergo another procedure, saying, “Noah went back for Brain surgery this morning due to another complication.”
The friends and family have thanked all of those for their support and beautiful messages, saying, “His recovery is hard on his little body and it’s hard to say how things are at the moment as it’s going to take some time. Thank you for all your lovely messages, prayers and donations.”
