The response from all over Ireland and beyond was overwhelming and over £40,000 was raised to enable Mark to go to a specialist clinic in Tijuana in Northern Mexico.Farren was accompanied by his wife Terri-Louise and had gruelling treatment on the grade four brain tumour.However, it is not yet known if the treatment has been a success or not as it is too early to tell.They won’t know until they return to Mexico which they plan on doing at either the end of August or at the start of September. His wife Terri-Louise has said the treatment has left Farren exhausted but has thanked everyone for the messages of support and everybody is praying the treatment will be a success.STRICKEN SOCCER STAR MARK FARREN BACK FROM MEXICO AFTER INTENSIVE TREATMENT was last modified: July 24th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Mark FarrenMexiconewssoccerSporttreatmentlast_img read more
