How is the money spent?
Through the HSE, one operation would cost approximately €50,000. However, thanks to the generosity and dedication of the medical staff, the co-operation of the hospitals and the sponsorship of the medical supply companies, Straight Ahead can complete the operations at a cost of €15,000 each.
The amount of €15,000 covers the cost for theatre facilities, x-ray facilities, spinal chord monitoring, a 5-7 day in-patient hospital stay and antibiotics.
The medical implants and the majority of medical staff costs are donated free to Straight Ahead.
