LEGISLATIVE  RESOLUTION honoring Dylan Conboy upon the occasion of being
selected as the Upstate New York Chapter of the  Leukemia  and  Lymphoma
Society's 2013 Boy of the Year

WHEREAS,  It  is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and pay
tribute to those outstanding individuals  whose  personal  triumphs  and
extraordinary spirit and determination are an inspiration to others; and
  WHEREAS,  Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body  is  justly  proud  to  honor
Dylan Conboy upon the occasion of being selected as the Upstate New York
Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's 2013 Boy of the Year; and
  WHEREAS,  The  individual selected as the Boy of the Year is chosen by
the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society for his  strength  and  courage  while
battling  leukemia;  he  serves  as an example for thousands of children
across the United States who are winning the war against  blood  cancer;
and
  WHEREAS, One day before his third birthday, Dylan Conboy was diagnosed
with  Leukemia; today, this extraordinary young boy is approximately two
years into a three year course of treatment; and
  WHEREAS, Strong, happy and courageous, Dylan Conboy  takes  an  active
role in his treatment; he regularly "helps" his nurse with her work; and
  WHEREAS, Dylan Conboy, in his role as the 2013 Boy of the Year, serves
as  an inspiration for local Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Man and Woman
of the Year candidates to raise  awareness  and  monetary  contributions
with the hope to find a cure for all blood cancers; and
  WHEREAS, Because of his strength and the sacrifices of his family, the
Leukemia  and  Lymphoma Society is one step closer to achieving its goal
to find a cure for blood cancer so that children like  Dylan  Conboy  do
not suffer the injustice of blood cancer in years to come; and
  WHEREAS,  It is the custom of this Legislative Body that when individ-
uals of such enduring courage and bravery are brought to our  attention,
they  should  be  celebrated  and recognized by all the citizens of this
great Empire State; now, therefore, be it
  RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause  in  its  deliberations  to
honor  Dylan  Conboy  upon the occasion of being selected as the Upstate
New York Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's 2013 Boy of  the
Year; and be it further
  RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to Dylan Conboy.
