BENEFITING: ST GEORGE'S SOCIETY OF NEW YORK

EVENT DATE: May 21, 2016

THE STORY:

I have worked at St. George's Society since 2009 and every year the charity supports hundreds of people in need in New York. There are many compelling stories I could share but I want to tell you about a baby boy who is my motivation for running the Brooklyn Half Marathon.

Earlier this year a young family came to St. George's Society in the middle of a medical crisis. Jon and Eleanor have three children under the age of five. The youngest, Dylan, was born in May 2015 with a cleft palate that was inadequately treated at the local community hospital, leaving the infant with severe surgical damage.

Dylan was referred to Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital to repair the cleft palate and the damage caused by the original surgical procedures but sadly, he now relies on a tracheotomy to breathe and a feeding tube.

Dylan requires 24 hour care and his mother Eleanor is currently on leave of absence without pay to look after him. Both parents and doctors are optimistic that he will lead a normal life in the future but for now the family’s income has been drastically reduced making it difficult for them to pay the bills each month and keep a regular routine for their other young children.

St. George's responded to the emergency appeal by providing funds each month to assist with the family's day-to-day expenses and our social worker has regular check-in calls with Dylan’s father to offer emotional support and advice. 

I am so grateful for everything St. George’s Society has done to help my family during such a distressing time. It allows us to focus on the well-being of all of our children, taking away some of the financial worries that we have faced since my wife gave up her job to care for our baby.” Dylan’s father, Jon

Thank you in advance for your support, it will keep me going on the big day and allow St. George's Society to support more people in crisis like Dylan's family.
