Editorial: Help to fight fatal Battens

LITTLE Saoirse Heffernan lost her fight for life early today in the loving arms of her parents Tony and Mary, at their home in Co Kerry.

The Herald has followed five-yearold Saoirse’s brave battle against Battens Disease and that of her brother, Liam, who also has the condition. One fitting way to remember Saoirse is to support Bee For Battens, The Saoirse Foundation, a charity set up by her parents to highlight the disease.
