TRANSFORMING LIVES TOGETHER
JOHN AND LOUIS’ STORY
John and Louis are brothers who share a special family bond rooted in respect, encouragement, and laughter. Louis is well-known throughout Boston for riding his bike around the city. In the past year, Louis experienced some physical set-backs that required hospitalization followed by a year in a rehabilitative center. Louis’ bike has been placed in storage while he’s working on regaining his strength. John has been a great source of encouragement and friendship during this time. In April, Louis moved into a new Vinfen home. John enjoys visiting Louis at his new house and inspires Louis to continue to work hard every day.
