The three-year-old will travel with her parents Aisling and John and her little brother Jamie to St Louis in Missouri. It is hoped that the treatment will help Katie to walk.

A huge fundraising campaign is underway to raise the €60,000 needed for the treatment. To date over €45,000 has been raised. For more information or to donate see www.katieswishtowalk.com
