For the Boys!!

John Schwally was near and dear to many of his friends an colleagues!!  John was diagnosed early in his life with a rare renal disorder which ultimately led to the failure of his kidneys and a kidney transplant.  13yrs of immuno-suppresive treatments and numerous other medications took a toll on John's overall health.  While most folks see a physician once or twice a year, a doctor or hospital visit for John was nearly a weekly event.   Losing one's health is not only mentally taxing, but it is a tremendous burden on a single income family.  John could not work for 10yrs and the burdenof supporting their family fell upon Carol, his wife.

John and Carol's boy's are amazing young adults.  His oldest son, Brian...loves history and is pursuing a degree in History follow his passion and teach.  John Joseph is graduating from Wantagh H.S. in 2 weeks.  He is planning to attend SUNY @ New Paltz and is studying Geo Chemistry with a minor in Music.  Losing your father at such a critical time in their lives is such a huge blow.  The last thing in the world these two boys need is to worry about whether they can now afford to pursue their dreams!  

There are lots of causes in this world, but I can't think of a more deserving cause than one helping to ease the burden for those you love.   The family is trying to piece their lives back together.  I humbly ask that you donate $5, $25,......whatever so you can to help us ease the burden of John and Carol's boys as they try and make sense out of their loss!
