Former Madonna patient named to national wheelchair basketball team

Congratulations to Jeromie Meyer for being named to the 2017 U.S. Men’s U23 World Championships Team!

Jeromie is a former Madonna patient and member of the University of Nebraska Omaha wheelchair basketball team, which Madonna sponsors.

We knew back in 2008 Jeromie was a special young man when we selected him as a GOAL Awards recipient.

As part of the team, Jeromie will travel to Argentina for the International Wheelchair Basketball Federation Continental Qualifier between Jan. 22 and Jan. 29.

Jeromie, we’re ready to cheer you on and we’re proud of all you’ve accomplished since your time at Madonna!

Madonna has an Adaptive Sports and Recreation program that serves children and adults with physical disabilities as a result of traumatic injury or illness.
