Facts about Ireland's Hope.
Ireland's Hope is named after a local Minnesota girl named Ireland Larson who received a heart transplant in 2015. Ireland's aunt, Patti O'Connor, saw firsthand the devastation that families go through when they have a child in heart failure, in the hospital and waiting to receive a heart transplant. Ireland's Hope was the first charitable organization of its kind when it was founded in 2015.
