“Walk For a Second Chance”
Paula Peroni, Trustee for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board was a guest speaker at the Irish Heritage Club’s “Walk for a Second Chance” media conference held at Tom Davies Square to promote organ donation in Sudbury. Mrs. Peroni spoke on behalf of her son Justin Peroni who was killed in a tragic accident in 2002. It was during this most difficult time that the Peroni’s was a family made the unselfish decision to donate Justin’s organs.
Thanks to this donation, a 28 year old woman and a 70 year old gentleman received the gift of sight. Both transplants were successful for these very grateful individuals.
