prayers and support from team 1345

It saddens me to say that a member of our very own, Team 1345- The Platinum Dragons, is very ill. Arefin Bari has been stuck upon by a serious health condition which may disrupt the contribution he makes to the team and the FIRST community.
It is very hard to summarize Arefin's contribution to FIRST in a few sentences but he is always trying to push others to their maximum potential and strives to be the best while still upholding integrity and gracious professionalism. Arefin continues to inspire many other young minds from a day to day basis.
He will be admitted to the hospital tomorrow (the 25th) in order to receive a test which may decide his future presence in FIRST. I believe the least we can do for Arefin is to send him our prayers and support while he is struggling through the roughest part of his life. Who knows, he might not have a temper for once...lol

Thank You, Aakash Gihwala (Team 1345)

Re: prayers and support from team 1345

Fin. From the first time you shared this news with me a few weeks back I have been both speechless about what you are going through, and also concerned as well even though I may not have been able to chat with you as much as I can lately.

I may not have all the answers for you buddy, but by taking this huge personal step tomorrow I hope it will lead to the answers you seek and then a speedy recovery.

We will all be waiting to hear from you, and thinking about you in your time of need.

Keep in touch!
Hopsital better have wi-fi darn it!
Right?
if not, we are only a phone call or text message away buddy!

Sincerely,
Elgin Clock and all your friends on 237.

Get well soon kiddo!
