Fulfilled Wishes

Entries in CT (2)


Judith P., 71, Enfield, CT

Judith Partridge, a resident of St. Joseph's Residence in Enfield, CT, had her wish for a power wheelchair granted, thanks to our Long Island, NY chapter. Partridge has several medical conditions and is wheelchair bound. Her only method of getting around was using a manual wheelchair so she either had to rely on others to push her around or had to use her feet to push the chair herself. Partridge served in the Medical Corps of the U.S. Army as a medical specialist working in physical therapy. After her discharge, she belonged to the American Legion and was involved in supporting other veterans. A generous donor bought the chair for her and James Ciervo, our Long Island, NY chapter director delivered it on Thursday, March 10th.


Grace M., 92, Southington, CT

Grace, a widow for the past 12 years, needs a new washer and dryer.  Her dryer has caught fire in the past and she constantly worries that it will happen again. Grace received her new washer and dryer on June 22, 2011!

This Simple Needs wish was made possible by a grant from Bristol-Myers Squibb.
