She loves to sing and dance, which is great because she wants to be a world-famous rock star when she grows up.

Ireland has been in and out of the hospital since she was born because of a congenital heart defect.

She has had three open-heart surgeries and numerous stays in the hospital, including at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.

Ireland needs a new heart and has been approved for a transplant, but she will have to travel in order to receive it.
