As we go through life, it is rare that we experience a legacy left behind by a 28-year-old who has touched the lives of many, served as a role model and overcame adversity. It is only fitting that the memory of such an inspirational young man lives on.
On April 7th, 2015, Stony Brook Children’s Hospital unveiled a room in memory of Mickey DeMartis. The family chose a room in the NICU in the beautifully refurbished original hospital with six separate pods for six babies and a parent to stay overnight.
In addition, Wyoming Street, where Mickey grew up, was named “Mickey’s Way” on January 19th, 2015. The ceremony was highlighted in a Channel 12 segment.
The family would like to thank everyone who attended Mickey’s Memorial Event and donated to his honorary room in Stony Brook Children’s Hospital.
