M. J. Demetras... Celebrate Life

THE STORY:

Life is precious…

    I'm turning 60 (finally some would say)...

My birthday wish is to celebrate mothers bringing children into the world...

    safely, without pain, humiliation, or fear for survival.

For more young girls than you can imagine, this is not possible.

     They suffer from untreated, childbirth-related obstetric or traumatic fistulas. 

Restorative surgery and postoperative care costs just $450 for one woman.

     Will you join me and change the life of a new mom and her family?

A few dollars...as little as ten... can make a huge difference.

Cheers! 

M. J. Demetras (alias Marty, Marty-Jo, MJ, MJD, Martha, Marthula, Koukla, and many more)
