Ireland Meyer is an energetic, sweet, and funny 10 year old girl who was born with a rare birth defect called Long Gap Esophageal Atresia ( EA is where the esophagus doesn’t connect to the stomach). Her first surgery to try and connect her esophagus went terribly wrong which resulted in many complications. She has endured countless surgeries and procedures. Ireland has Down Syndrome, is trach and vent dependent, and struggles with many other medical issues. Her family was told that she would never walk, talk, or even eat by mouth but to this day she has beat the odds. And at just shy of 5 years old she finally got her esophagus connected at Cincinnati Children`s Hospital. Ireland is currently struggling with her “colophagus” (they took part of her colon and made it into her esophagus). She needs surgery to help her continue beating the odds. This surgery needs to take place in Cincinnati as her case is very complicated. The doctors say she will be in Cincinnati for a month or more. All proceeds raised will go to help her family with hotel costs, food, gas and other expenses. Plates will be $10 each. If you would like to get a ticket in advance please contact Aruna or Jasmine otherwise you can get a ticket on arrival. Aruna: 507-320-8878 Jasmine: 507-402-1810
