In this heartwarming interview, Peekskill Rotary President and District 7230 Director of Gift of Life Joe Lippolis takes the listener through the steps that saved a 2-year-old’s life. Jostyn Baque, diagnosed in Ecuador as having a congenital heart problem that could not be corrected in his country, would have died within a few years had not Peekskill Rotary and another Rotary club teamed to sponsor Jostyn’s heart operation by a pediatric surgeon in Westchester. Several other groups, including American Airlines workers who generously donated their miles and the Ecuador community in Westchester County, joined to make a difference!
