Dear friends and supporters!
My name is Yusuf Patel. I am 14 years old. Both myself and my sister, Khadija (7) were recipients of organ transplantation, necessitated due to our inborn metabolic condition - Methylmalonic Acidemia. While transplant is not a cure for this condition, it has definitely enhanced the quality of my life. While we have been blessed for having received the life saving organs in time, not many are as lucky.There are still a number of people on the waiting list and the list keeps growing. For the last four years I have led Team Hope, with my family and friends, in various awareness campaigns in PA and DE. This is an important initiative that needs support from one and all.
And my name is Adeeba Allimulla and I am 12 years old. I have been a co-captain for Team Hope with my friend, Yusuf. As we all know, there are many people on the transplant waiting list who are desperate to receive their life saving organs. The only way to help them receive their life saving transplant is by raising awareness on organ and tissue donation globally.
Please join Team Hope on Sept 23rd at the 4th Annual DE Donor Dash. This year our fundraising goal is $1000. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for supporting Gift of Life Foundation.
