VIDEO - Mark Farren reacts to outpouring of support

Derry City F.C. legend, Mark Farren, and wife, Terri Louise, have thanked all those who have contributed to a fundraising campaign to help Mark get the treatment he needs to battle a Grade Four brain tumour.

Mark, 33, underwent a third operation on his brain at the beginning of April and as a result his speech and mobility have been affected.

“I am very, very emotional and happy at the same time,” said Mark.

“I can’t believe it - it’s given me the motivation to keep on fighting.”

On Friday, the Farren family revealed that a recent operation to remove a brain tumour in Mark’s head had not been totally

successful.

Potentially life-saving treatment is available at clinics in Germany and Mexico but it will come at a significant cost.
