PARSIPPANY — On Saturday, October 1 a beefsteak fundraiser will be held starting at 6:30 p.m. at All Saints Academy Gymnasium, 189 Baldwin Road.
Tickets are available at $50.00 each and the even will feature the band, Not Enough Jeffs.
On Thursday, March 3, what started out as a normal school day for 13-year old Noah suddenly turned tragic. During gym class, Noah excused himself to the locker room. While in there, his heart went into an arrhythmia which ultimately led to cardiac arrest. A friend found him unresponsive and contracted his teacher who immediately began CPR. The school nurse and EMT’s were summoned to help and administer an AED to get his heart started again.
Noah was rushed to nearby Morristown Medical Center. On the evening of March 3, he was transferred to Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital at Columbia Presbyterian in New York City and was in the cardiac intensive care (ICU) for almost three weeks. The doctors conducted a successful ablation procedure on Noah and shortly thereafter he left ICU.
However, his fight is not over. Even after five months in the hospital, Noah is expected to have a long road of rehabilitation ahead. Everyone is hopeful that Noah will recover from the trauma so you can hear his voice and see that infectious smile.
Please join the community to help Noah and his family. All proceeds will go to help the Lorencovitz family as they continue to tackle this difficult situation. They are part of our community and members of Saint Peter the Apostle Church. Noah and his father, Tim, have been part of the CYO basketball program since Noah was in the fifth grade. Let’s all come out together and continue to give support and prayers for Noah and his family so NOAH can wear his #4 jersey on the basketball court with his team mates very soon.
For tickets make checks payable to Saint Peter the Apostle Church, 179 Baldwin Road, Parsippany. For more information contact Gapo Guzman at (973) 332-5977 or Loida Guzman at (973) 732-3222.
