Humanatarian Award Presented
On Monday, October 14, 2013 Derry Borough's Mayor Dave Bolen presented the first Mayor's Humanitarian Award to Jessica R. Checca for donating a kidney for her father Al Checca who was in stage four renal failure and had been waiting for his third kidney transplant.
This was an event to be celebrated. Jessica gave selflessly and purposefully to save her father's life, as many donors do. The importance of organ donation saves many lives such as parents, daughters and sons, brothers and sisters, grandparents, aunts and uncles, and best friends. Did you know that just one person donating their organs can change 270 lives?
We thank especially Representative Joe Petrarca and Westmoreland County Commissioners Tyler Courtney and Ted Kopas for attending the ceremony with their own awards for the family. Our community leaders were moved by this story and wanted to share in celebration the saving of a community resident's life.
