Although supposedly retired, Joe Bodanza started an
organization called Child Medical Connection, Inc., approximately four years
ago, to help bring Vietnamese children stricken with polio to this country to
receive medical care. The whole idea started after Joe visited Vietnam in 1995.
On that trip he met a young man suffering from the after-effects of polio. Sympathetic
to the youngster's plight, Joe formed his organization upon returning to the
United States. Because of Child Medical Connection, afflicted children can now
come to the United States for treatment at the Shriners Hospital, which provides
free medical care to children under the age of 18. To date, 26 children from
Vietnam have received help through the program. Their ages range from nine to
18. It is truly a labor of love for Joe Bodanza.
