Gift of Mobility Lets Disabled Middle Island Man Enjoy His Young Family and Active Life

MIDDLE ISLAND, N.Y., April 7, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- After terrorists attacked the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, New York City Patrolman Kevin O'Connor was dispatched to help at the scene. Now, more than seven years later, O'Connor needs help overcoming respiratory complications from working at Ground Zero and injuries suffered later in the line of duty.

But the married father of three young children is disabled because of respiratory problems and a debilitating condition that resulted from being struck by an all-terrain vehicle driven by a teenager. Mr. O'Connor has struggled to maneuver his manual wheelchair and needs power mobility equipment to improve his quality of life.

Citing Mr. O'Connor's many contributions to our society, The SCOOTER Store has helped the disabled officer by providing him with a power scooter though its Gift of Mobility program. The donation was a surprise to Mr. O'Connor, who received it at a benefit sponsored by his friends at the Smithtown Country Kitchen on April 6. Distribution Center Managers Anthony Pepe and George Santos from The SCOOTER Store presented the power wheelchair at the Sunday event.

The donation was made in cooperation with the FealGood Foundation, which was formed to help 9/11 responders. "We thank The SCOOTER Store for helping make this event a wonderful experience for Kevin," said John Feal, who runs the foundation. "Like so many other young men, Kevin was there when his country needed him most. And the least we can do is show our appreciation for his sacrifice."

US Representative Tim Bishop (D-NY), who attended the event, said: "Our nation owes a great debt to the brave first responders who risked their lives to save others. Kevin O'Connor well deserves this gift, generously donated by the SCOOTER Store. We m
