The Roberts Trap is Sprung

By:  Bill Dunne

The Cubby Fund’s July Hero of the Month: 13 Year Old Roger York III from Fort Fairfield


Fort Fairfield Journal, August 20, 2014

Roger York III, born weighing only one pound, was diagnosed early with Downs Syndrome accompanied by blindness and an inability to speak.  Roger has undergone several surgeries, including an eye surgery to help him see better.  Unfortunately, the surgery did not take and Roger remains blind.  Life for Roger is very difficult as he cannot see, talk or play with other children the way other 13 year old boys do.  Mom has said that, “looking at other boys his age and knowing what Roger is missing out on in life is sad.  He depends on us to help him every day.”

 Roger, described as a very loveable and caring young man, is supported by his parents, Laurie and Roger York as well as his two sisters Mindy and Macy who enjoy spending time with their brother.  Roger enjoys country music, attending the OTC program in Presque Isle and spending time with his family.    Roger was awarded $100 on behalf of The Cubby Fund.

 If you know of a child who is struggling with a chronic or life threatening illness and would like to see them nominated for the Hero of the Month program contact Cindy Johnson at 768-6200.
