The end of the Rotary year was June 30. We had a goal of reaching our 300th child saved over the lifetime of Gift of Life-Arizona, but missed that by only 4 children!  Still, we are proud to have helped 296 children since 1985. Thanks to those who have worked and contributed to reach the 300 mark! Currently, there are 18 children on the waiting list, and with the support of our fellow Rotarians and friends, fully expect to do this in the very near future!




This is one of the children whose life you helped save! He is with "Heartly Bearker" our Gift of Life bear.

We are working hard to make arrangements with healthcare facilities in Arizona for space for these children so we can bring them to Phoenix and Tucson to treat them for their congenital heart defects.
