Ireland's Dream, Inc. hasn't added a story.
75% of children with cerebral palsy, a permanent neurological disorder that occurs at birth, live in single-parent households. The therapy, medications, doctor's visits, and equipment that these children need is very expensive. Most families cannot afford the types of treatment that can help these children improve and recover. Many of the innovative types of medical treatments that can help these children, such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy, hippotherapy, stem cell therapy, among others, are not typically covered by health insurances, forcing these single-parent families to pay out of pocket.
Ireland's Dream, a 501(c)3 non-profit charity, is building a unique therapy center to remove the barriers for these children, so that they can receive these important life-changing therapies for little or no cost out of poscket.
Our story is in 3 phases:
Phase 1 is our main therapy center, complete with hyperbaric oxygen chambers, specialized physical therapy clinic, being provided by specially trained therapists and technicians. We also have social workers who help families obtain grant funding and other scholarships to help with a variety of cerebral palsy-based difficulties (i.e. securing grants to build a wheelchair ramp at the family's home, etc.) Our goal is to let families focus on healing, without the worry of how to pay for it.
Phase 2 is our residence hall. We want our families to be able to stay for extended periods of time, thus maximizing the therapy benefits. The best way for this to happen is offer them a place to stay on site, without the worry of lodging expenses.
Phase 3 is our indoor olympic-sized pool. Water-based therapy is excellent for children with cerebral palsy. It also gives us the opportunity to rent our pool for local meets, special olympics, and others, in order to generate operative revenue.
We NEED your help. Your donation is helping countless families receive vital support to secure these services. Children with cerebral palsy have only a small window of time to improve their condition. Your donation offers them hope.
