Gift of Life for Children (Aired April 1, 2011)

In this heartwarming interview, Peekskill Rotary President and District 7230 Director of Gift of Life Joe Lippolis takes the listener through the steps that saved a 2-year-old’s life. Jostyn Baque, diagnosed in Ecuador as having a congenital heart problem that could not be corrected in his country, would have died within a few years had not Peekskill Rotary and another Rotary club teamed to sponsor Jostyn’s heart operation by a pediatric surgeon in Westchester. Several other groups, including American Airlines workers who generously donated their miles and the Ecuador community in Westchester County, joined to make a difference!
