William from the Newport Shipyard

William is the friendly face and person who has welcomed us at the Newport Shipyard for over 14 years. He has protected us from harm and helped us see the positive relationships in everyone who has come and gone through the NSY entrance. Unfortunately, over the last year, William has been battling stage 4 cancer in front of our eyes and now he can no longer work due to his pains. It is our turn to help him beat this illness! Please donate to assist William in his fight against Cancer.
