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.
