I was asked the other day how long I’ve been doing this charity. I was speechless as I held up both hands – ten fingers. It got me thinking not just about how we started this great journey, but more importantly, why. As a longtime family friend once told me, “Caruso Family Charities started way before you did, Jerry.”
I haven’t gone to the car and cried in a long time, but this case was especially hard. I recently met Kimberly Skeers and her 6-year-old son Nicolas, who suffers from a genetic disorder that left him devoid of a skeletal structure to support him and almost no functionality. He doesn’t talk or walk.
