WHS first class valedictorian, Diane Wood, '68, is on the short list to be nominated by President Obama for the U.S. Supreme Court. Keep your fingers crossed and we might have a Westchester graduate on the Supreme Court.

From the first Miacis.

Timothy McMillan passed away Sept. 13, 2010 and his funeral was Sept. 18, 2010. I sent a email and the webmaster posted a sympathy note on Houston Chronicle Legacy website.

Just to let everyone else aware.

I knew Tim since 1963 and we stayed close our entire lives.

~~~ NEWS FLASH ~~~

One Kidney Needed!

Our dear, precious Sally is once again in need of a kidney transplant. She has been on the transplant list for several months with the likely prospect of it taking several more months before a kidney becomes available. A kidney from a living donor is the best option for Sally. Because of problems in the past, Sally is unable to receive a kidney directly from a blood relative. There is a swab program, which is an option, but it would most likely take longer and time is of the essence, We want to get the word out and let everyone know about her situation. We respect that donating a kidney is a very personal subject and everyone has their own feelings about it. If you, or someone you know, wants to find out more about the process, please contact the Living Donor Center at the Methodist Hospital at 713-441-8900. 

If you are unfamiliar with Sally's story, the following is a quick summary:

Sally's Journey

Eighteen years ago, Sally's journey began when she noticed her normally thin legs and feet were quickly getting more and more swollen. A visit to the doctor's office landed her in the hospital for testing. For the majority of the year, Sally would reluctantly call the Methodist Hospital her home. She would endure biopsies, multiple central lines, dialysis, chemotherapy, septic shock, and the list goes on... The worst news to come was that her heart was in distress. Sally needed a kidney ASAP. Testing revealed that her brother, Billy was a perfect match and he generously gave the gift of life to his little sister. Unfortunately, this perfect match was only a very temporary fix. Whatever mysterious disease it was that destroyed Sally's kidneys would also destroy Billy's. Sally soon lost this precious kidney. She was put on dialysis for a year and a half. After a few disappointing false alarms, the call finally came. There was a tragic motorcycle accident. A young man lost his life, but his family chose to donate his organs. This incredibly kind donation has allowed Sally to live a nearly normal life for over 15 years. She has protected this kidney so well that its lifespan has been much longer than expected. This past summer there were signs of trouble which resulted in Sally once again being put on the transplant list. The hope was that this kidney would continue to surprise us and last many more months, but now this wonderful gift is all but exhausted. Sally's health is deteriorating. Her doctors advised her that her best option is a kidney from a living donor. A kidney from a living donor offers many benefits. It typically lasts longer, and starts to function immediately. There is a lesser chance of rejection and it allows more control over the timing of the transplant,. At this point, there are a few people who have come forward to start the process to potentially donate a kidney, and sadly, one has already been denied. We know that God is walking through this entire process with Sally. We are asking and believing in Him to provide the right kidney in His timing. Please keep Sally in your prayers
