Danny Ezequiel Jimenez Sarmiento, our Gift of Life child, is scheduled to arrive from Honduras at 11 P.M. next Tuesday (August 12) via Delta flight 1515, along with his mother, Maria, and an interpreter, Karla.

Since the Southern Rensselaer County club is underwriting the $10,000 cost of Danny’s travel and cardiac surgery, it would be great if as many club members as possible would show up to welcome him at Albany International Airport.

According to Dr. Melissa Ehlers, “Danny has a pediatric cardiology appointment on Wednesday, August 13, at 2:30 p.m., and then we are hoping to have his operation performed on Tuesday, August 19.

“If everything goes as planned, he should be able to attend the Gift of Life golf tournament on September 11, and, if you so desire, maybe attend one of the Southern Rensselaer Rotary meetings as well.”

We do so desire, so we’ll work with Melissa on settimg that iup.

Once again thanks to those SRC members who made personal financial pledges to help us reach our goal of supporting Danny, as well as providing an additional $1,000 to “prime the pump” for GOL’s next child medical project.
