Andrea Salvaggio's Recovery Fund

Dear Friends and Community Members,

My name is Francine Falbo Carroll and I am setting up this GoFundMe page to support Andrea Salvaggio.  Our families have been close family friends since her birth. I am raising these funds for the specific need of assisting Andrea in the long road to recovery that she has ahead. This includes but is not limited to medical bills, therapies, aid in appropriate housing or modifications thereto,  on-going appointments with doctors and therapists for many years to come.  A specific account has been set up so that Andrea's support team can directly access the money for her continued care as needed.  
This GoFundMe account was created to help with 13-year-old Andrea Salvaggio’s recovery. As many of you know, she was a victim of a violent attack. Andrea has sustained many physical and emotional injuries and has a long road of recovery ahead.

Andrea is an amazing athlete that has a lot of energy! She has a tremendous passion for dance and cheerleading and has recently excelled at softball, track, and volleyball. Unfortunately, it is unclear if Andrea will have full mobility in her legs, hands, and back due to this devastating event.

In addition to her athletic prowess, Andrea is a caring friend and loves spending time with her two dogs Reese and Buddy. This recent heartbreaking event has shown Andrea’s strength, bravery, and determination. Her recovery will be lengthy and extremely difficult. Let’s surround her with continuous love and support.

Andrea and her mother have been deeply moved by the prayers, kindness, and love the community has provided. Your generous donations will directly help fund Andreas’s physical and emotional well-being and provide a glimmer of hope during these challenging times.


While the prognosis of Andrea’s injuries to her torso, legs and hand remains uncertain, she has been transferred out of the ICU and she is awaiting further details for her next steps of therapy and recovery.
