Taken from Deb Holler’s (RC of Simi Valley) Facebook page is the following heart-warming story of Rotarians in action:
Thank you to all members of Team Tony for your prayers and encouraging words! In less than 24 hours from now, Tony Falato will receive the gift of life from fellow Rotarian Rocky Rhodes, and the transplant process will begin!! We ask for your continued prayers and positive thoughts for Tony and our donor Rocky throughout the day tomorrow and in the coming weeks as they begin the recovery process. We will post updates on the Team Tony page as we are able. We thank for so much love and support through this process!!
 Look at these smiles with their signed hospital gowns from the Rotary Club of Simi Valley! It says it all! The person giving the gift of life and the person receiving the gift of life. Praying for the perfect outcome today!! We love you Tony Falato and Rocky Rhodes!!
The day after surgery both Tony and Rocky are resting and recovering. Your continued prayers are appreciated! Thank you to all of you for your comments, prayers, and show of amazing support and love!!
