Why the Sunshine House is important to Kyle
Sunshine House Inc., "creating community options for people of all abilities!"
A large part of Kyle’s “WHY” is in regards to his brother.
Kyle’s younger brother Danny, was born with special needs. His positive outlook on life and why he’s so happy was one of the reasons why Kyle decided to explore the brain and how it affects your mind and body.
The Sunshine House has been very instrumental for Danny’s development and has been a great outlet for him to connect with his peers in a safe community
In this photo you will see Kyle Ferroly with his brother Danny and their parents while celebrating the Sunshine House’s 48th annual dinner.
Kyle has such immense gratitude for the Sunshine House that he donates a percentage of his book sales to their organization.
Kyle and his family reside in the wonderful Midwest state of Wisconsin.
