Quincy

YMCA Child Care

When Y staff describe Quincy, her leadership skills and individual growth are just the beginning of the conversation. Quincy has Diamond Blackfan Anemia, a disorder that frequently requires her to undergo medical procedures and transfusions. 

Vicky, Quincy's mom, says she is a hero because she never gives up. 
"Even on a hard day, she never gives up," says Vicky.

For every procedure that Quincy overcomes, she receives a bead to add to her special recovery necklace. These small beads represent the many victories in her journey of recovery. 
Quincy's poise and positive attitude while at Y Child Care make her the true heart of the YMCA.
