Bill Wood's Recovery

On Saturday, December 30th, Bill Wood suffered a stroke.  At age 47, he has a long road ahead of him.  Bill and Joanne are very proud people who will not ask for anything, but would be the first to give you the shirt off their backs.  In order for Joanne to be there for Bill, she will need to take time off from her  jobs.  Joanne runs the before and after school programs at the Hoover School in Melrose, previously at the Horace Mann School.  She is a Para-professional at the Hoover School.  Bill is originally from Reading, but you may know him from Melrose sports, basketball or baseball.  You may also know their three sons, Patrick, Brendon and Connor.  Please consider making a donation of any amount to help this wonderful family through a very difficult time.  Between medical bills and the need to keep a roof over their heads, your help is greatly appreciated.  Please spread the word.  Sometimes you never know who is willing to help.  Thank you all very much.
