                 WITH HELP OF MAUI PACE
                 John Bellini is known by many as “NYC Boy” because that’s what it says
                 on the Hawaii license plate on his electric wheelchair. He lived at Hale
                 Makua Kahului for two years, during which time he daily thought about
                 how he would fix-up his new place when he was able to move from
                 Hale Makua and hoped that he would soon be able to live
                                                               independently again. The
                 “I love the feeling that I can do first time John came to stay
                 some things on my own now.” at Hale Makua was for
                                                               physical rehabilitation, and
                 he then chose to go back home because he didn’t want to live at a
                 nursing home. When he returned home he fell several times hurting his
                 shoulder and his hip, and then realized that he needed more help. With
                 limited affordable options for care on Maui, he accepted that Hale
                 Makua was best suited for his needs at the time.

                 John was born and raised in New York City. At 18 he studied in London
                 as an apprentice to Vidal Sassoon and then went on to become a hair
                 stylist for Sassoon in New York where he worked on Madison Avenue.
                 His career as a hair stylist took him to the cities of Paris, Rome,
                 San Francisco and Los Angeles, and he spent time in Arizona, Texas, and
                 Australia as well. 15 years ago he came to visit his daughter on Maui,
                 fell in love with the Island, and decided to stay. (continued on page 2)
