Gift of Life makes a difference in lives around the world. Here’s an update from Neysha Stone, mother of Jamaican Gift of Life child Raj, who spent time at the East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club in Mt Pleasant a little over a year ago. His new heart is still going strong.
Hello to you all, I am excited and happy to inform you that yesterday February the 5th marked a year since baby Raj has been given a new lease on life, I am indeed happy that my child is alive, do I take the opportunity to remind you of how grateful I am.
Baby RAj has been keeping good health: play well run around as any other normal child. He is to visit his cardiac clinic in April at the Bustamantee Hospital for children here in Jamaica. We are also planning on visiting our great stalwart a hero and a great friend, Dr. Foster to officially thank him because without him I don’t know were my hope would have been. May God continue to bless you all as you save the lives of our tomorrow. Here are a few pics of baby raj blowing out his 2nd birthday candles.
Members of the Carolina Rotaract Club welcomed Spring Valley’s Gift of Life (GOL) patient and her mother from El Salvador at the Columbia Metro Airport on Sunday, September 29. Thanks to Spring Valley GOL Chair Bill Oliver for coordinating with Gift of Life El Salvador and to Spring Valley Rotarian Kathleen Ganley for hosting the patient and her mother. A gamma knife procedure is scheduled for Tuesday at Palmetto Health Richland to treat her brain tumor.

Great news! Marlon, our Gift of Life child from Panama, had a very successful checkup today (July 9, 2013) and was released from MUSC, cleared to go home. Mrs. Pat & I went to the airport to see Delta which not only got them on a flight tomorrow afternoon (July 10, 2013) but agreed to waive all transfer fees for Gift of Life. They will also provide an escort from gate to gate to get the flight to Panama. We very much appreciated the excellent service.
