May 27, 2009 is a day I will always remember - the day my first nephew, Nicholas, was born. From the day he was born, we have had a special bond that is hard to explain. Since Nicholas was diagnosed with Autism in 2013, my sister and brother-in-law have done everything they can to ensure Nicholas receives the best services possible. Nicholas is an incredible little boy who loves to swim, play at the beach, and finishes 1000 piece puzzles in a day.
It is very expensive to get all the services that Nicholas needs but thanks to organizations like the Doug Flutie Foundation and their annual grant to the Scituate C.O.R.S.E Foundation, many children now have access to life-changing programs. Nicholas has good days and bad days, but one thing is for certain – with the help of C.O.R.S.E he has had more good days and is continuing to amaze us every day. The Scituate C.O.R.S.E. Foundation is a critical part of Nicholas’ community and provides access to social, educational and recreational activities for all children, regardless of their disability.
The Doug Flutie Foundation gives thousands of dollars per year in grants to programs for children and adults. Please consider donating today to this amazing cause, helping not only Nicholas and our family, but all the other families out there that are in need of support from the Doug Flutie Foundation.
I could not be more excited to fulfill my dream of running the Boston Marathon for such an incredible cause.
