Club Members take the Floor May 01, 2018
Is it the truth? How well do know your fellow Rotarians?

Do you know any secrets about members of the Rotary Club of Norfolk? Have you been reading Rotations and particularly the “Meet Rotarian _____” section? How well do you recall what your fellow Rotarians pay fines for at weekly meetings? Have you listened to conversations at your table and at socials when your club members share their life experiences? Have you got to know a Rotarian better by participating at a service activity or community project?

There are many life events, career accomplishments and interesting adventures of club members that will help you cherish the richness of our club. Some are total surprises, ones that you may be very surprised to hear. Others will increase your sense of pride in your association with our club and its members.

The May 1st 2018 session will be a fun test of your knowledge. Bring your best game face and be prepared to be surprised. We plan for you to leave with an increased appreciation for the secrets and accomplishments of members of the Rotary Club of Norfolk.

The Nuss Procedure
The Nuss Procedure

Some people come to Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters in search of something most of us take for granted: A deep breath.

Some people can be born with a chest deformity that cause their breastbone to press down on their lungs and heart. Many have been through multiple surgeries – as a young child and a teenager - to fix the bone, called the sternum. Sadly, many return to a life of fatigue, a chest that is sunken and such thin tissue across it that people can literally see their heart beat under their skin.

The medical term for the condition is pectus excavatum. Pectus excavatum, also known as sunken or funnel chest, is a congenital chest wall deformity in which several ribs and the sternum grow abnormally, producing a concave, or caved-in, appearance in the anterior chest wall.

The Nuss procedure is a minimally-invasive procedure, invented in 1987 by Dr. Donald Nuss for treating pectus excavatum. He developed it at Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters, in Norfolk, Virginia.
