Late Late Toy Show star Saoírse Ruane is feeling well and recovering after successful surgery
Late Late Toy Show star Saoírse Ruane is “well and recovering” in hospital after undergoing surgery to remove a tumor this morning.
The nine-year-old girl was reunited with Ryan Tubridy on RTÉ’s Late Late Show on Friday, where she opened up about her cancer experience and having her leg amputated.
In a Twitter post ahead of today’s surgery, Saoírse’s mother, Roseanne, said she was very concerned about the surgery as the tumor is in Saoírse’s lungs.
However, in an Instagram post this morning, Roseanna said the surgery went according to plan and Saoírse is recovering with her teddy bear named Slush.
“Just a quick update to let you all know that Saoírse’s operation went as planned. She is comfortable and recovering in ICU with SLUSH by her side,” she wrote.
“This is the first of many steps on this difficult journey! We are so happy and grateful to be sitting here next to her. We are so grateful to her surgeon and her amazing team here at Crumlin Hospital. Thank you for your continued support.”
Saoírse, from Co Galway, won the hearts of the nation when she performed at the 2020 Toy Show and the latest announcement went viral, garnering almost 2,000 likes.
Her mother revealed in Late Late on Friday how kind her daughter was and thought beyond herself to others.
The child had seen a man raising funds for Ukraine on Grafton Street in Dublin and had asked for money to be given to the war-torn country.
Saoírse admitted she wanted to help because she felt the people of Ukraine needed money “more than me”.
