Simon's Angels was create by a family who lost their son after a year of battles! Their wish is to give pediatric transplant recipients and families a glitter of hope in desperate times. It is during these times that families need to be together, and we hope to make that possible for families in direst need of help.
In the last three years we have raised over $50,000.00 to help transplant families with medical expenses, medicine, housing at Ronald McDonald or Transplant House, electricity, lodging, transportation, donation to the Pediatric Transplant Department and even funerals. Our goal at our 3rd Annual Family Fun Day is to exceed last year's total of $20,000.00. We need your help to do so and hope that Simon's story will entice you to help those who will benefit from your generosity.
Please join us on Sunday, August 24th at the Port Orange YMCA at 12:00. There will be fun for the entire family ... food, swimming, bouncy castle, raffles and a silent auction. If you can not join us, please donate to help children in need!
Lastly, please spread the word promoting organ donation ... just by passing it along, in the words of Flannery O'Connor, "The life you save might be your own."

This is yet another example of what ordinary people can do to help others!
Remember, together we can make a difference!
