Harry In Waterford Is Six And He Is kicking Lymphoma's Ass!

Avril sent us this very cute little boomerang of her twins.
Johnny and Harry are inseparable brothers/superheroes and wanted to do their bit to help Dare To Care.
Listening to the Muireann O'Connell show Harry turned to his Mum and said,
 "Mam I'd like to give my €11 to the dancers if it would help them out"

Hey @MuireannO_C @TodayFM #DareToCare

It is all the money in his piggy bank. Thinking of other people at such a young age.
In October of last year their world was turned up side down when Harry was diagnosed with Lymphoma. Mam Avril had only herself beaten cancer so this was a real kick in the teeth.
But they haven't looked down only up and only forward. Harry has been an inspiration and has bounced back and started in Avril's own words to "kick Lymphoma's ass"
The lads are both HUGE superhero fans and recently went to see Avengers: Endgame and dressed up as Captain America and Thor you can see! (they don't mess about these fellas)

We know Harry is going to hammer Lymphoma!


⚡ Harry's our REAL-LIFE SUPERHERO! ⚡
Harry, who is 6-years old and battling lymphoma, gave up his €11 from his piggy bank to help fight cancer! 🐷 💶#DareToCare @IrishCancerSoc #AvengersEndgame @chrishemsworth @marvel @marvelstudios ♥️❤️♥️ pic.twitter.com/6TQisUb7nZ
