The Save Our Sonia campaign is fundraising to send Sonia Hoey back to Mexico to undergo further cancer treatment.

The campaign for former Dundalk FC player Sonia, who was diagnosed with incurable cervical cancer in July 2020, begun in late August.

Sonia, who has received the maximum dose of radiation, cannot undergo treatment and was only being offered palliative care due to having 12 months to live.

Sonia travelled to the Hope4Cancer clinic in Mexico earlier in the summer, who use nontoxic treatments to shrink tumours.

After returning from treatment, she was advised by doctors to return after three months, so she and her family have relaunched a fundraising campaign to raise €50,000 to send Sonia back within the next six months.

People interested in donating can visit her GoFundMe page.
