Many of you may be aware that recently the Brusic family experienced a difficult family situation. Twenty year old Marcello was in a serious automobile accident in Pennsylvania, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. He spent almost six full weeks in the hospital – first at Geisinger in Danville, Pennsylvania and then at Mt. Sinai in New York City. Thankfully he is now at home though confined to a wheelchair and obviously continuing to need physical and occupational therapy.
It is very obvious to all of us that there was great expense incurred by the family during the time of hospitalization and recuperation. Of course, the family wanted to be physically near to Marcello which meant finding a place to “lay their heads” while he was out of state. Once he arrived in the City, there was the added cost of parking or commuting. Now, they are waiting for his customized wheelchair to be delivered. Thank God that neighbors and friends of the Brusic family have helped them make adjustments to their home to accommodate the wheelchair. It is not an easy task for any of the family right now.
The whole point in sharing this story with you is to tell you that our St. Raymond School Family would like to assist the Brusic family as best we can. Therefore, we will have a DRESS DOWN DAY on Thursday, October 30th with all proceeds going to the family. I would hope that everyone will be able to make some kind of donation knowing that truly every penny counts. If you are writing a check please make it out to “St. Raymond School” or cash. We will gather it all together to make one donation to the family. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity. Please know that the Brusic family is most appreciative for whatever help we can give. Finally, please continue to pray for Marcello and his family. Prayer can bring miracles!
In Mary’s Immaculate Heart, I am
