Many of you may have seen footage recently on TV and social media of the campaign for Kira the Machine. Kira is a 14 year old from Craiglockhart who is a pupil at Firrhill High School. She has been fighting high-risk Neuroblastoma since she was 11. She urgently needs an operation to completely remove the disease. Despite gruelling treatment and three operations already, her cancer has come back twice.
Now her best hope of being disease-free is life-saving surgery in the USA by a world renowned specialist surgeon in New York.
Kira’s family have to raise £350,000 by 10th May and are desperately appealing to raise funds.
We are having a Hats4Kira day on Friday 4th May. This is completely optional but if the children would like to pay £1 to wear a hat/silly hairstyle or wig to school on that day it would support an excellent cause.
