UPDATE!!! March 2023 - Our Brother Hank Needs Our Help

Louis F Carbone | Published on 2/6/2023

Attention, Attention! 

March 2023 UPDATE!!!

Just a quick update, our dear brother Hank is recovering after his operation and is doing well.  Thanks to all who offered their support in whatever way they were able; Hank and his daughters greatly appreciate it!  Please continue to keep Hank in your thoughts and prayers as he continues on his road to recovery!

On a Serious Note...

Our brother Hank is in need of an operation, has had a disturbing diagnosis and is in need of any support we can offer. His daughters created a Go Fund Me page and I have provided the link below, CLICK the PHOTO. If you are able to help in any way, it would be most appreciated. Please keep our brother Hank in your thoughts and prayers.

From Daphne & Aileen... 

Hi friends,

Thanks for clicking this link, and I hope this message finds you well. As some of you may know, our dad, Hank Saatchi moved to Izmir, Turkey last year. What you might not know is that over the holidays, he received a kidney cancer diagnosis.

While the prognosis is good, his kidney removal surgery needs to be scheduled as soon as possible. Much like in the US, the Turkish health system is insane to navigate without insurance, so your help in making sure this surgery can be covered and scheduled ASAP is so very deeply appreciated.

Please share with those who know and love Hank, and know that any contribution you can offer matters, even if it's just a note hello or a well wish.

Wishing you a happy new year and sending our gratitude,
Aileen and Daphne
