Some of our exccellent results for children of the community during 2017.
A few pictures of Warren Marr and Ellaine who have been nursing Lorraine through the preliminary stages for nearly a year and a half prior to her KidOp. Lorraine was finally given the go ahead by the jovial pediatric cardiologist for her operation to correct a congential defect. We hope her operation will take place sometime soon. Thank you Warren and Ellaine for all you have done for Lorraine and her family. Food, transportation, prescriptions, and examinations and enduring the setbacks all along the way. I pray we are close to her operation and a normal live for this young girl. Thanks to our Post and our members for helping this young girl. It's a great thing we do. #VFWPostPride Warren Marr
