Ronnie Felton

Ronnie spent many years walking around different neighborhoods as a Postman. In 2010, he underwent surgery for a knee implant that lead to complications.

Although Ronnie eventually became an amputee, he started going to the YMCA everyday with financial assistance made possible through our Annual Campaign. He talked to Dot McFadden, the Health and Wellness Director at Brandywine, about different exercises and eventually gained more strength in his upper body and hips. Ronnie looks forward to seeing Dot and the Y staff every day. He tries to focus on the positive things and people in his life.
“I am thankful to the Y because it fits my needs and I know if something happened, these people would take care of me.”
