Work trip 2019

For our summer work trip this year, Drs. Darlene and Jon Melk were joined by board member Lesley Alderman and her son Charlie. Check out the thank you video that Leslie and Charlie put together for our generous donors!

The RVF team met with the CSRA leadership to discuss the cases and our treatment plans. Overall, the children are doing well.  They are all growing and progressing each day.  Some of the cases are more difficult than others, but everyone is moving in the right direction and we were very pleased with what we saw.

In addition, we were thrilled to learn that a group of women belonging to the Lion’s Club, La Merced, have “adopted” the Rosa Vera Fund as one of their major beneficiaries. We are honored and delighted that they would like to help our fund and we left with concrete plans for them to do so.

Again, thank you all for your constant support and belief in this work. Our patients’ families are deeply grateful, as expressed in this quote from the mother of RVF patient Aaron:

I thank God for everyone who helps and supports the Rosa Vera Fund.
