Joyce Eleanor Fobes, 9/29/1926 - 8/26/2015, was born with severe bilateral hip dysplasia. At the age of 9 ½ she was admitted to Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children in Minneapolis, MN where she spent eighteen months.

After surgery and some time in a body cast, doctors studying her x-rays knew she would have difficulty walking, but had her fitted with shoes, gave her crutches and encouraged her to walk. They had done all that modern medicine knew to do at that time.

With a cheerful smile she was soon racing up and down the corridors of the hospital until one morning the surgeon told her she was doing fine and could go home. He took away her crutches and told her she didn't need them any longer. Carefully inching along and using the walls for support she made it back to her ward and gradually gained strength to walk without any help. Stairways presented a major challenge and walking was labored.

She was discharged in June and by fall had learned to ride her brother's new bicycle. Her father lost a lot of weight that fall as he ran beside the bicycle holding onto it for fear Joyce would lose her balance and have to return to the hospital.

She never thought of herself as having a handicap and enjoyed her own bicycle and later purchased shoe roller skates, defying all counsel from the doctors to be careful.

Joyce held in her heart a special place for Shriners Hospitals for Children. Thankful for the care they had provided and wanting to share with other children in need, she requested that any memorial funds be given to Shriners Hospitals that specialize in burn care.

To donate, please click the "Make a Donation" button in the Team Fundraising Goal box toward the top right side of the page. When you choose a program, please select one of the four hospitals specializing in burn care treatment, Boston, Cincinnati, Galveston, or Sacramento.

Thank you, on behalf of Joyce, for your contribution toward bettering the lives of children.
