Dear New York State Police Surgeons & Associates Lodge #3,
The amount of happiness and joy that the SA Lodge has given to our family, especially through our two younger boys, Kevin Jr. and Shaun, is immeasurable.
You have given our boys, and family, back the joy, the quality of life and freedom that most typical children and their families deserve and get to enjoy often.
We will be forever grateful to N.Y.S.
One of the side effects of our son’s disease is the progression of scoliosis, which can be very painful. With your gift of the Full-Sized Hospital Bed for our son Kevin Jr., he has been given a more comfortable place to relax and sleep when he is at home. The bed is designed perfectly for Kevin Jr., due to his brittle bones, he requires a bed that is tailored to these needs.
Our sons, like many with physical limitations, are usually anchored to the safety of the home. However, with your gift of the two beautiful Team Hoyt Running chairs, you have given them back the joy of being outside. These chairs are safe, secure and, due to their design, have given our boys countless hours of “pain free” walks. We have also enjoyed bike rides, runs and trail adventures, all in the same chair!
As a parent, it is such a beautiful feeling to see your children happy and free from pain. It is also a great feeling to see countless people, young and old, come up to your children when we are outside and offer them a smile and words of encouragement.
What a true blessing it has been to receive the love and generosity that N.Y.S. has provided our family.
Kevin and Dianne Carroll
