Appeal to fund life-saving spinal surgery for Wanstead resident


A crowdfunding page was set up last month to support Wanstead resident Kirstin Maguire, who needs life-saving spinal surgery not available in the UK.

“For the past few years, Kirstin has been house – and increasingly – bed-bound… Her skull, neck and spine are unstable in a number of areas, and there are only three neurosurgeons in the world with the expertise to attempt the surgery she needs,” said Kirstin’s sister Clara.

Over £60,000 has been raised so far, with a target of £200,000.
