Editor's note: The following is a statement from the family of Carly Krier. Anyone looking to donate items for a silent auction can contact Patrick Klein at PatrickJustinKlein@gmail.com.
Carly Krier, the daughter of Larry and Kirsten Krier, is a 7-year-old second grader at Kaposia Elementary Schoolin South St. Paul.
When Carly was born, she was diagnosed with Schone's Syndrome, a rare congenital heart disease. Before the age of 2, she underwent two open heart surgeries to help fight the disease.
On July 16 2012, Carly underwent her third open heart surgery.
The good news is that the doctors have said Carly’s recent surgery was very successful. The bad news is that open heart surgeries are very expensive.
In an effort to help offset medical bills from the heart procedure, the Cro XII softball team is sponsoring a taco feed fundraiser on Carly’s behalf.
If you like tacos, please consider stopping by the Croatian Hall on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 2-7 p.m.
There will be plenty of silent auctions items to bid on along with several other fundraising games.
If you don’t like tacos, or can’t make it to Carly’s Taco Feed, please consider making a donation to the Carly Krier Trust Fund at any Wells Fargo Branch.
