CHRISTMAS CAME a little early last week for little Lily-Mae Morrison, the girl who's Drogheda uncle has led the drive to get her charity single to the top spot for December 25th.
Paul Hayes was in contact with the Drogheda Independent with news of the four-year-old's successful surgery, in the week where ' Tiny Dancer' appeared on RTE's Late Late Show.
' She is really doing well at the moment, with her stem-cell surgery going to plan,' said Paul, who is manager of the Barbican centre in William Street.
' The next step is stem-cell rebuilding, and she is waiting for a bed so they're not sure if she will be home for Christmas, so Santa came a little early last week.'
The charity single to raise funds for Lily-Mae's condition Neuroblastoma is still holding its number one position in the charts, but the next two weeks will be crucial.
'It was a great boost to the it performed on the Late Late Show last Friday, which has really raised the profile and awareness of the cancer,' added Paul. ' We really hope people still continue to buy or gift the single, however, for the best change of a Christmas Number 1 spot, hold off until buying until after this Friday.'
A fundraising event was held in the Barbican on Sunday, and DIFE is also holding two Beauty Blitz days this week, which are completely sold-out.
To buy the single ' Tiny Dancer', visit iTunes, or there are a limited number of CDs in CD World and HMV, Scotch Hall.
