Ireland

Hello, we are Megan and Mark. Over three years ago Megan gave birth to our beautiful baby girl, Ireland. However, during birth, an umbilical cord prolapse resulted in Ireland having cererbal palsy. She spent the first 7 weeks of life in the hospital, and we waitied anxiously to take her home to her older brothers.

This was our first real world experience with cerebral palsy. Many people we talk to today don’t even know what cerebral palsy is. Cerebral palsy is a variable type of brain injury that affects people in many different ways. Some children are only slightly affected, while others are permamently disabled, wheelchair-bound, and need constant attendant care.

Family Dynamic

Cerebral palsy makes a huge impact on the family dynamic. Not only are many cerebral palsy families financially decimated by this disease, but they are also stressed emotionally and physically.

There are no treatments out there that are covered by insurance to treat or reverse cererbal palsy. However, there are many, many therapies available worldwide that improve cerebral palsy, and can have significant impacts on quality of life. Unfortunately, most of these therapies are difficult to obtain due to lack of insurance coverage and travel costs.

We were lucky enough to discover and utilize many of these therapies for Ireland, and have seen dramatic improvements in her since using these therapies. We truly believe that no child with cerebral palsy should have his or her treatment options limited by his or her parent’s financial status. Out of this belief, Ireland’s Dream was born.

Ireland’s Dream is to establish a medical center that is fully dedicated to the treatment of people with cerebral palsy and their families. This Center will have the latest in treatment technologies that people all over the world are using for cerebral palsy, available under one roof.

Therapies will include:

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen
  • Ozone Therapy
  • Cuevas Medek Therapy
  • Scoliosis Treatment
  • Vibration Therapy

Other necessary therapies will include:

  • Family Counseling
  • Diet & Nutritional Interventions
  • Feeding Therapy
  • Assistive Device Training
  • and More!

Our goal is to make cerebral palsy synonymous with Ireland’s Dream. Please help us make Ireland’s Dream come true for patients all over the country who are suffering from the debilitating disease.

We thank you greatly for any support you can provide.
