Benefit Wednesday for Baby with Congenital Heart Defect

Posted: Updated:
Friends and family are hosting a benefit on Wednesday to help defray medical expenses for a baby girl who has spent much of her life in the hospital.

Everleigh Borr was born on December 13, 2013 at Sanford Hospital in Fargo. She has endured three heart surgeries, an abdominal surgery and numerous procedures to repair a heart defect.

It was discovered that she was born with a very significant congenital heart defect; transposition of the great arteries and large ventricle septal defect.  She has spent most of her life in the hospital at Sanford Hospital in Fargo, the University of MN Amplatz Children's Hospital in Minneapolis and most recently at Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto, California.

The Everleigh Mae Borr Benefit Fundraiser is scheduled from 4:00-8:00 p.m. at Sts. Anne and Joachim Catholic Church in Fargo. Head to 5205 25th Street South on Wednesday, July 16 if you would like to help out. Friends and family are hosting a spaghetti feed, silent auction, pie auction, bake sale and live entertainment.

Lend A Hand, a program of Dakota Medical Foundation, is providing up to $5,000 of matching funds to provide more help for the family. If you aren't able to make it to the fundraiser, you can also send donations to Bell State Bank or donate online by clicking on the link to the right.
