organ donations and recruiting people to sign-up to become a donor.  She

she said, “ sometimes I feel ok, other times not so  good, my only hope now
is a transplant”. President of the Alton Centennial Rotary, Richard Leonard (L),
and Rotary Program Director, Duane Hammond, thanked her for her talk.
