Yes! We have a new surgery update to share about Traver!
As you might remember…
In January, the HeartValveSurgery.com community sponsored the much-needed heart surgery of Traver, a courageous 2-year old boy from Uganda who suffers from a very complex cardiac condition.

Unfortunately, the global COVID-19 pandemic delayed Traver’s travel from Uganda to Israel (where the procedure will be performed).
During the delay… To show our love and support for Traver and his family, Robyn (my wife) sent a care package of fun toys and clothes from Los Angeles to the Kyankuta Village in Uganda.

Here are some wonderful pictures that were sent to us from Sunday John Bosco, an extraordinary person who helped start Open Heart POBIC Uganda, a non-profit organization that helps children with cardiac disorders. Sunday John Bosco brought the care package to Traver’s village from Fort Potral, Uganda. So you know, Open Heart POBIC Uganda received its full NGO status in 2019. Congratulations Sunday John Bosco!!!

Thankfully, the team led by Gift of Life International has made all of the logistical arrangements for Traver’s travel and stay in Israel.
Great job to Rob Raylman, the CEO of Gift of Life International, and Sunday John Bosco for their non-stop management of Traver’s surgery given all the challenges of COVID-19!!!
