Passing the following on from our DG.

THIS IS URGENT ! Please consider how you can help. This is an excellent program, with many children saved by our district Rotarians. Ted Shaughnessy (see below) can give you contacts for clubs and Rotarians who have had this excellent experience.

Host needed to save life of 3.5 year old Jaada from Belize

Gift of LifeNE needs a host family/club for 3.5 year old Jaada and her mom from Belize who are coming here for life saving open heart surgery on March 2.

Belize is English speaking. Surgery is March 2 at MA GeneralHospital in Boston and pre-op is Feb 25. Jaada and mom will both stay in the hospital from March 2-9 or so . Then go back for a follow up a week later another follow up a week latter and possibly ( not common) a third follow up another week later. So they will be with the host from about Feb 24 - March 2 and back around March 9 through late March. Hosting can be shared with others too.

Please consider opening your heart and home so Jaada can measure her life span in decades rather than days. This will be a life altering experience for the hosts too.

YOU can make a difference. Yes you can. Gift of LifeNE is a project of Rotary District 7910. See our website www.golne.org

Other kids will be coming later too so be sure to contact Ted if you will consider hosting at any time.

Contact Ted Shaughnessy, for more information or to discuss hosting.

Well, this is it. Westford Rotary has entered the digital age of blogging. Thanks to Dan LeBlanc from the Merrimack Valley Club for hooking us up. We are now linked to our sister clubs digitally in District 7910.

Westford Rotary meets Thursdays at 12:15 at the Westford Grille. Swing by and see us sometime! Starting in February, we'll be moving into a bigger space in the newly opened banquet room upstairs!
