Henry from Canandaigua, NY
There's no place like home


Henry, who suffers from multiple sclerosis and is confined to a wheelchair, dreamed to go home and have dinner with his family. His family takes him on frequent outings, but he never could go home because his wife lives in an apartment with a narrow outdoor stairway that could not be navigated. The local fire department readily agreed to assist us in this dream fulfillment and a team of 4 firemen met our bus at the house and carried Henry up to his wife's apartment, where he enjoyed dinner with his wife, son and grandchildren. After dinner and dessert, the firemen again assisted Henry back to the bus.
