Almost €2,000 has been raised for a sick Irish woman who had €6k skimmed from her bank account.

Denise Ryan (30), from Rathfarnham, Dublin, contracted potentially fatal Lyme Disease while living in Canada.

A campaign saw over €40,000 raised to help Denise afford the care she needed in the US.

However, after weeks of treatment and with €6k left in her account, Denise had her bank card skimmed and was left with just €3.


As a result she was forced to cancel her doctor appointments.

However, in the last 48 hours more than €1,700 has been raised to help Denise (above), who is currently in Seattle.

"Donations have continued to come in since people heard of my card being skimmed," she told the Herald.

One generous person contributed just short of €1,000 to Denise's online site, http://www.gofundme.com/3000tenners.

Denise previously explained how the Lyme Disease, which was left untreated for some time, has reached "life-threatening" stages and has left her with "no quality" of life.
