NISKAYUNA: A friend in need

The family's too proud to ask people to do something like this, but we know, with Julian having spent so much time in the hospital and now being in rehab, that they are going to need whatever people can give them, said Moore. "And it doesn't matter what the amount is, anything that someone can donate in this holiday season would be greatly appreciated."

Moore said she and fellow organizers Debbie O'Donnell and Christine Perlee have tried to keep the fundraising simple.

"We've set-up an account in Julian's name at Berkshire Bank, and we're just asking people to make donations that we're putting in that account," said Moore. "All they have to do is write a check to Julian, and we'll deposit it. That way the money will be there for him for anything they need. Whatever expenses there are, this can help cover them."
