Good Deed

So a few weeks ago I met a fellow Hemophiliac. He has a rare factor deficiency and a few years ago he suffered a stroke.
He doesn't have a lot of family support and has be unable to work since the stroke.
Our Hemophilia nurse suggested that we get him a laptop.
She felt this would open a lot of doors for him, allow him to talk to family, write resumes, apply for jobs and make new friends.
I wrote a proposal to our Chapter and within a week they approved the funds to buy him his very own laptop!
Today, Our president and I dropped off the computer to him. It was so wonderful to see him so happy. This is the first computer he has ever had.
I am hoping this will improve his quality of life and I must say I am so grateful that I got to be a part of making someones life better!
