YesWeCanSir & The Joan Nicole Prince Home

Left to Right: Kim Borysewicz, Donna Schraa, and Executive Director Susan Tomlinson.

The Yes We Can Sir board of directors:
Kim Borysewicz; President/Treasurer, Jo Landolfo; Vice President, and Donna Schraa; Secretary recently visited the Joan Nicole Prince home and donated an array of much needed supplies thanks to your generous donations. Susan Tomlinson; Executive Director and Gail Macejka; Residential Coordinator, took the time to give us a tour of this magnificent and tranquil home and explain in detail what their organization is all about.  We all were enlightened and in awe with the whole organization and how they serve our community every single day. 

The following is an excerpt from the website, it says it all:
 The home is named after Joan Nicole (Keating) Prince, a Niskayuna, NY native and young mother of four. “Joanie” lost her battle with cancer and, in her honor, her husband gave a notable donation which allowed the Home to originally open in 2006.

Located in the Village of Scotia, The Joan Nicole Prince Home provides 24 hour bedside care for two residents at a time in a homelike environment. It is staffed primarily by volunteers and the care provided consists of laundry, meals, personal care, cleaning and support to our residents and their families.

The Joan Nicole Prince (JNP) Home is not a medical facility and it is run independently by the Schenectady Community Home, Inc. The Home collaborates with Hospice who provides the
medical management for the patients as they do for anyone receiving hospice care in their own home environment. The volunteers and staff of the JNP Home become the “surrogate family” for residents.”

July 18th, 2014

Yes We Can Sir has many events that are being planned for the near future. We are proud to say that we have collected many donations that have afforded us the opportunity to send two children to Y camp, and much needed donations to local Comfort Homes in our community.  We would like to do more. With your help we can continue giving to those that need assistance. Please go to the fundraising page and give a gift to those dealing with cancer. Thank you for your support. Please email us if you are interested in volunteering at our events.

YMCA - Exciting News

Yeswecansir is excited to announce we have given a grant to two young boys which will enable them to attend the Capital District YMCA day camp for one week this summer.

Their names are Dylan (age 6) and his brother Brady (age 8). Dylan was diagnosed with Leukemia one day before his 3rd birthday. He spent a week in the PICU and underwent multi-blood transfusions, bone marrow aspiration and started Chemo. Dylan just finished his last Chemo treatment in March 2014.

Both boys have been involved with the YMCA Circle of Champs program since July of 2011. This program is dedicated to improving the quality of life for children who have been touched by a life threatening illness. YWCS is excited to be associated with this program and IS looking forward to working with them in the future.

Thanks to all for your continued support-whether it be monetary donations, volunteering your time or relating your ideas/suggestions, your continued efforts have helped to make yeswecansir successful.
