Letter from the Editor


Every now and again you read a story that really puts things into perspective - and this month we bring you a story that really made us all think about how blessed we truly are.

Our health editor Lisa Smyth met with Castledawson mum Donna Ross, who is mum to four beautiful children.

Her son Caine was diagnosed with epilepsy - which obviously was traumatic for the family - and then out of the blue doctors announced that he was suffering from a brain tumour as well.

Suddenly Donna’s world was turned upside down and her life became a round of hospital appointments and treatment at London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Thankfully Caine is now feeling a lot better and his mum is throwing herself into fundraising for the hospital that helped save her son’s life. A wonderfully selfless gesture I’m sure you will agree. And it seems the Mid Ulster area is known for its selfless ladies - we also bring you a story about

the wonderful ladies from the local MS Support Group. Some are sufferers of the condition, some are carers and some are fundraisers - each with one thing in common - putting other people’s needs before their own and helping others.

So here we are in July - can you believe it? I know we probably won’t have any good weather - but sure, who cares? I know we don’t have money to go on holiday - but sure, who cares? Let’s just make the most of what we have and have a relaxing July.

Until next month
