Thanks to 63 different individuals, foundations, and corporations, we have now raised $22,738, which is 62% of our goal. October 2017 is when we will administer the MRI brain scans. If we can not raise our entire budget, a lottery procedure will determine which students will go to Xichang. Your compassion and generosity will be deeply appreciated by these 56 children and their families.

Bill and Shari take Lhungtse to Her Neurologist - 30 October-7 November 2016
Bill Warnock and Shari Mayer traveled to Chengdu, Sichuan, to take Lhungtse to her neurologist, Dr. Zeng Xian Rong, for an examination and tests. Because she had suffered from a larger number of epileptic seizures this year, Dr. Zeng prescribed a second medicine for her. Then they returned Lhungtse and her mother to their home in Yajiang.
