The SCOOTER Store Surprises 9/11 First Responder & Merrick Firefighter With Power Chair
Date:11/9/2009

TOWN OF HEMPSTEAD, N.Y., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- On Sept. 11, 2001, thousands of firefighters, police officers and other rescue workers came together to save as many lives as possible in New York City. Merrick firefighter Brian McCauley was one of those 9/11 first responders. Now he is fighting to save his own life.

Only in his late 30s, McCauley was diagnosed with cancer in 2006. He has undergone surgery and extensive chemotherapy treatments, leaving him confined to a wheelchair and needing to carry oxygen. His family recently remodeled their bathroom to be handicap-accessible and purchased a lift so he could go upstairs. The FealGood Foundation, a nonprofit organization designed to educate the public about the catastrophic health effects on 9/11 first responders and provide assistance to relieve these great heroes of their financial burdens, held a fundraiser on Saturday at the Merrick Fire Department to help the family complete additional renovations and give this 9/11 responder his dignity back.

At the benefit on Saturday evening, The SCOOTER Store and the FealGood Foundation surprised McCauley at the North Merrick Fire Department with a Jazzy Select GT power chair. On hand from The SCOOTER Store's Levittown operations were Distribution Center Manager Anthony Pepe; Mobility & Service Specialists George Santos, Carl Frey, and Peter Piekarski; Field Support Specialist Nicole Sheets; and Healthcare Relations Consultant Victoria Wells to make the presentation. The power chair was donated under The SCOOTER Store's "Gift of Mobility" program, which provides mobility equipment and assistance to those who do not have the resources or insurance to obtain power wheelchairs and scooters.

"On behalf of 9/11 hero Brian McCauley, the 9/11 responder community, and the FealGood Foundation, I wish to thank
