To Whom It May Concern: My name is Marcy Maloney and I’m from Stoughton, MA. I’m writing to you to ask for direction or help. My husband’s National Guard unit did a tour in Kosovo for 15 months; they met a family with a little girl named Tamara, age 7. She has brain damage from birth because their village had no medical services and club feet. For one soldier, SGT Kevin Powers this hit home because his son was born with club feet also. They were corrected shortly after birth at Shriners Hospital in Boston, MA. He did a lot of work and talked to Shriners Hospital here, who agreed to do the surgery, pro-bono, on her feet in hopes of giving her a better life, as well as follow up care as long as need be. So with that secured SGT Powers made it possible with the help of his fellow soldiers in his platoon to raise enough money to get Tamara’s dad and older sister to come here, visas, plane tickets etc. SGT Powers also renovated his basement so they would have a place to stay. Up until today, the Powers family has pretty much depleted three quarters of their life savings supporting the family. Recently upon another appointment to Shriners, they believe, but are not positive their maybe nothing they can do for her feet. Because she has walked on them for 7 years and fear more damage if they go in and weaken muscle etc. Currently the problem is the family wants to stay and bring the other sister and mom here to live. Because once Kosovo was granted their independence Albanians came into their small village where they had lived and basically pushed people out, so out of fear the mom and sister have left their home. Id love to find a way to get dad a job and be able to contribute to the Powers family long enough to be able to be out on his own then bring the family here. He is a very humble man and only wants the best for his children. Unfortunately the Powers are basically tapped out and can not promise them another year which from my understanding is what they need to stay for to receive their visas or green cards. Kristina who is the older sister, 13, that is here to be the translator for the family has even asked SGT Powers to adopt her so she can go to school here that’s all she wants. For a thirteen yr old girl to ask to just be able to go to school and receive an education is heartbreaking that that’s all she wants. I’m hoping to receive direction, help, donations anything of the kind to help them stay longer to get where they want to be in life. Thank you in advance for listening and helping. Sincerely, Marcy Maloney
