Proteus and Trust One Team up to Support Will Penn
April 27, 2012 – Atlanta, GA – The road to recovery is a full time job. That’s what 1996 Olympian Steve Penn and his wife Jennifer (parents of Will Penn) discovered after their 8 year old son had a brain hemorrhage on July 6, 2011. After extensive surgeries, 6 ½ weeks in the hospital – 2 weeks in ICU, and an induced coma, Will has learned to walk again, first using a cane, and now on his own. He is attending 10 therapy sessions per week to regain the physical left side impairment and cognitive function that he lost from the hemorrhage.
A Friends of Will Penn 501 C 3 Trust Fund was started to fund the uninsured medical costs of Will’s recovery. This foundation is set up to see that Will gets the care and technology needed for a full recovery, so he can go back to being an a young boy.
A Celebration of Will is being held at next to the historic farmhouse at the beautiful, urban, Buckhead Barn in Atlanta, GA at 6:30 pm on April 28, 2012. Anyone can buy tickets to this event and/or donate to on Will’s behalf.
Proteus On-Demand Facilities recognizes the need to help children be children, and has become a sponsor of this event. For the event, Proteus has supplied a 1300 square foot tent with a raised, wooden, event floor.
Trust One Payment Systems is supporting “Friends of Will Penn” with their innovative card processing solutions. Each donation made will be processed through this secure system.
