Hear first-hand from Staystrong Program Participant Nancy below:
“Words cannot describe how thankful our family is for the Staystrong program at the Y! It was devastating news this past summer to hear my husband’s cancer had returned. His stage three cancer needed to be treated immediately. He had to stop working and our finances dropped to an all-time-low. More stressful than the lagging finances was the well-being of our 10 year old daughter and 7 year old son. These kids needed a happy distraction during their summer break from school. A good friend of mine who use to work for the Y spoke very highly of great programs the Y offered for families in our situation and suggested I contact you. I am so glad I did! Thanks to the Staystrong program and the generous donations that fund these programs, our kids were able to enjoy a great week of summer camp at Camp Quirk in Quincy at no cost! This was huge and the kids enjoyed themselves so much they look forward to returning to Camp Quirk next summer! Finally I must say every single person I came in contact with at the Y was top-notch superb customer service! Many thanks for helping a family through a rough summer!” – Nancy Daly, Staystrong Program Participant
