Our son Travis was born in 1994, three months too early. He weighed only 2.1 lbs and was given 6-12 hours to live. While my wife, myself, family, and half of the New York City Police Department waited to hear from the doctors that time was closing in, we instead were told by the assistant director of Neonatology at St. Vincent's Hospital in Staten Island, NY - that Travis was actually "pink". The NYPD assigned me to the hospital so I could be closer to Travis, I didn't return to patrol until I was comfortable with his progress. Three months, and three pounds later, Travis came home. Travis had two different Intraventricular hemorrhage's (IVH), retinopathy (ROP), and damage to his body that is probably still unknown. Travis fought hard - he's our hero. Travis has participated in Special Olympics for a while, even going to state a few years ago and winning a gold medal in track. He has played Challenger Baseball, but now he has taken on a new venture - playing Softball in the SO on a unified team in Martin County, that includes me and Stacy. Yep - me and Travis get to play on the same team. This is a worthwhile venture, and donating is secure - the more we have donated, the more Special Olympics makes out - and Travis, as well as the both of us receive incentives at the plunge for getting all of YOU for giving. Thanks for reading this, and thanks for giving whatever you can! Craig and Stacy Brockman
