Successful kidney transplant

Just a note to let folks know that my wife, Susan, underwent a successful kidney transplant on June 27. The living donor was a twenty-four year old young lady who worked with my daughter. Needless to say we have been blessed, and this young lady was a a Godsend in the truest sense of the word. I want to thank members of the Deerfield community and classmates who offered support and prayers during a difficult time. Sue is doing very well with a new kidney that has exceeded expectations. Sadly she took a tumble six weeks after her surgery and fractured her femur, but it could have been much worse and with some physical therapy is almost back to normal. Organ donation can be a miracle for many people and I would encourage everyone to consider it if the opportunity should ever present itself. Thanks again and we hope to see many of you back in the Valley again soon.

There are no membership fees or dues for members of the Deerfield family, but Deerfield does ask for assistance in a few areas. First of all, in order for Deerfield to have the most up-to-date records possible, we encourage members to keep us apprised of their current contact info. Alumni are also urged to direct all concerns and suggestions regarding Deerfield’s operations through the Executive Committee, the governing body of the Alumni Association. The committee acts as the voice of the alumni body, and works closely with the school administration. In order to keep tuition affordable and the quality of a Deerfield education at its highest, the Academy depends upon the continuing support of alumni and their families. This support can take the form of annual or capital gifts, or time spent volunteering on behalf of Deerfield.

There are Deerfield Clubs in many major American cities. Please visit here for more information on specific clubs and their sponsored events.
