Brave Angus youngster Ruby Walker has suffered another setback as her wait for a double lung transplant continues.
The battling Arbroath nine-year-old, who captured hearts with a bucket list of wishes which led to a meeting with pop star Olly Murs, spent the festive season in a critical care unit in Edinburgh as the search for a transplant donor continues.
Ruby’s mum Diane Boyd has revealed her daughter – who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at two weeks old – suffered a collapsed lung on Christmas Day and is being prepared for a move south as the wait for organs goes on.
She said: “We have been completely overwhelmed by all the messages of support and well wishes.
“As there have been no offers of lungs the plan is to move Ruby to Newcastle to list her for an adult upper lobe transplant.
“Ruby is coping very well and keeping us on our toes but her lungs are very delicate.”
