A Quick Update
Alison has done well over the past couple of days. Doctors are watching her bloodwork very closely as there are a couple of areas that require onging, critical assessment. Please continue to pray that she feels well as she starts back to school on a very part-time basis.
ALI'S ANGELS BENEFIT CONCERT
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to a very special Benefit Concert. As you know, Alison received her liver transplant on October 19th and although she has faced many obstacles, continues to get stronger and stronger every day. Alison is alive today because of the selfless and genuine act of giving from an amazing young man named John who became Alison’s living donor “angel”. We have much to celebrate.
So, please join us and John’s family on Saturday, February 27th at the ALI’S
ANGELS BENEFIT CONCERT in honor of Alison and John. The event will take place
at 7:30 p.m. at the Edgerton Center for the Performing Arts at Sacred Heart
University (SHU). Tickets are on sale for $20 and available through the SHU
Box Office, 203-371-7908, Monday through Friday, 12-4 p.m. All proceeds will
go into a special Ali’s Angels fund at Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital for
families of children and adults facing a liver transplant and donor families to
help cover extraneous costs incurred throughout the transplant and donor
We are very excited about the event and grateful to Cathi Lachioma, Executive
Director of the Performing Arts Center of Connecticut for spearheading the
Benefit Concert. The evening’s entertainment will be jammed pack with song and
dance from SHU students, In Motion Dance, a special guest appearance by Karla
Garcia a recent top ten finalist on last season’s “So You Think You Can Dance”
and a member of the “Boogie Bots” from America’s Top Dance Crew. Alison’s
brother, Stephen and Nikole Lacchioma, artistic director of the Trumbull Arts
School and founder of the Parker Project dance troupe will dedicate a special
vocal and piano selection to John and Alison.
This concert promises an evening to remember- uplifting, heartwarming and fun.
So, come out to celebrate with Alison, John and our families and support a great
cause which will aid donor families and other families at Yale New Haven
Children’s Hospital facing the day to day challenges of liver disease who pray
that they, too, will someday have much to celebrate.
Please feel free to invite your family and friends, so they too, can
join us in celebrating the miracle of life.
We look forward to seeing you on February 27th.
Joe and Karen
