Words cannot adequately express our profound thanks and deep gratitude to the Roxbury Rotary for putting all arrangements in place for the medical care of our eight year old son, Yuvraj Manoo, who was awaiting for some time the completion of an urgent and complex third phase “Fontan” procedure At a time when it was proving difficult to do so, you took up this case and ran with it until a reputable and willing medical facility was found.
Our growing anguish and despair finally gave way to great relief with the long awaited good news that a hospital has finally accepted the case. The marathon 12-hour surgery in particular and subsequent recovery in the ICU were quite tense days for us. We shall forever be thankful to Dr Henry Issenberg and his miracle team in particular Dr Sevro Sett at the Maria Fareri Children’s Hospital of the Westchester County Medical Center, NY. All arrangements to take care of mother and child at the hospital were excellent.
Our sincere thanks and gratitude go out to our gracious host Mr Sam Maddali and family for making our stay comfortable and for their great support throughout our stay. Airport pick-up, accommodation, hospital visits, transport and other incidentals were excellent. We could not ask for more. We were fortunate to have such a resourceful person as Ms Carol Delia at our side. She provided great support, both emotionally and otherwise. We say special thanks to trustee and founding director, Mr Allen Feehan and all those at Roxbury Rotary for making this a reality.
May you continue this noble humanitarian work in touching and enriching lives in a big way.
Kissoon & Sheila Manoose.
