Update: SEGA School for Girls, Tanzania

Heart Transplant Fundraiser for Matt Looby

This is a fundraiser to help Wadhams resident Matt Looby and his family cover expenses while he waits for a heart transplant. Matt’s heart has become so weak that he can only survive on an artificial pump (LVAD), which requires open-heart surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. After a long recovery and intravenous meds, he still has to wait for a heart transplant.  Charie, Matt’s wife, works as an RN at a hospital nearby, but will need to take time off to be with Matt during the surgeries and recovery in the following weeks and months. They desperately need funds to help cover medically necessary travel, lodging, and loss of income.
