Englewood, FL - Gift Of Life recipient Aliesha and her mother Phillippa arrived in Tampa International Airport from Belize late Sunday evening on February, 13th. On Thursday Doctors operated on her at All Children's Hospital to close a hole in her heart. Alliesha’s procedure was a more difficult and time consuming than expected but the Dr. was successful in closing her hole thru the Cath lab and feels very good about it! She is already feeling better, swallowing and ready to eat. Phillippa and Aliesha are staying with fellow Rotarians Valerie Wagner and James Humans while here in the USA. Aliesha is expected to be able to return to Englewood Friday afternoon, where she will spend the next few weeks in recovery.
More than one million Rotary members have donated their time and personal resources to end polio. Every year, hundreds of Rotary members work side-by-side with health workers to vaccinate children in polio-affected countries. Rotarians work with UNICEF and other partners to prepare and distribute mass communication tools to reach people in areas isolated by conflict, geography, or poverty.
