Hi everyone. As the title suggests, a cat in my life needs help. His name is Enrique and due to heart problems, he needs a pacemaker. Unfortunately, this type of thing is expensive and his owner can’t afford it.
I know this type of post is a pain, but Enrique’s owner is someone who means the world to me and I told him I’d do whatever I could to help, including this. I’m asking you all to please consider making a donation to save Enrique’s life. I’m sure many of you are animal lovers and can imagine how awful it would be to lose a pet because the vet bills were too high.
I’m not posting this because I want to empty your wallets, I’m posting it because I know that if everyone with the ability to donate gave a few dollars, the fundraiser would be over in no time.
I know how I usually react when I see these posts. I scroll past them, or maybe like them with the half-hearted intention of donating later. I’m asking you now: don’t be like me. Don’t wait. Don’t expect everyone else to help if you won’t. What would Steven do if he were reading this right now?
Here is the link again. Anything you can give counts. I know that through our compassion and generosity, we can do this. Thank you.
Εngineer invents safe way to transfer energy to medical chips in the body
A Stanford electrical engineer has invented a way to wirelessly transfer power deep inside the body, and then use this power to run tiny electronic medical gadgets such as pacemakers, nerve stimulators or new sensors and devices yet to be developed.
The discoveries reported May 19 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences culminate years of efforts by Ada Poon, assistant professor of electrical engineering, to eliminate the bulky batteries and clumsy recharging systems that prevent medical devices from being more widely used.
The technology could provide a path toward a new type of medicine that allows physicians to treat diseases with electronics rather than drugs.
“We need to make these devices as small as possible to more easily implant them deep in the body and create new ways to treat illness and alleviate pain,” said Poon.
Poon’s team built an electronic device smaller than a grain of rice that acts as a pacemaker. It can be powered or recharged wirelessly by holding a power source about the size of a credit card above the device, outside the body.

There will be a few things I will need.
Money for ink to print everything out. I will scan a receipt if needed
Money for postage. I will provide a tracking number so we know it got there.
Appreciation for my time. I need things here on time. I will try to make sure no one gets left out. You are all important to Lee and to everyone here.

Yeah, I'm going there, I am doing this...Happy Valentines Day Pacemakers!
Our Piemaker, the Red Bandit, Whit Coutell, Aaron Tyler, the Soldiers girl, Ronan the accuser, Elf King Thranduil and many other Pace Faces……..I wish all MY followers and very dear friends, HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!
