2nd Gift of Life Child Arrives in Indy

We have a second  Gift of Life (GOL) patient for this Rotary year! Salima and her mother Soueba, plus an escort from Togo (Anna), arrived from Togo (Africa) May 3 and settled in to the Ronald McDonald House. Little Salima is just shy of one-year-old, but about the size of a 6-month-old. She had a huge VSD and had surgery the week of May 8 at Riley Children’s Hospital with Dr. Mark Turrentine. The surgery went well. She is recovering quickly and was released from the hospital last Saturday. Salima, and our earlier patient Johanna, are well loved and cared for during their time with us. It is always such a help that Rotarians are willing to invest their lives into our GOL patients and their families.
