Hello, my name is Jessica and this page is for my husband and our family.

On October 4th, Angelo was picking our son up from school when he observed a teen clutching a gun at his waist walking in front of his suv, the teen then appeared to start chasing another teenager behind his vehicle. He then proceeded to follow the teen in his car and found him standing alone, in a black mask, and black clothing he rolled his window down and asked the teen if he had a weapon, the teen answered no and sprinted off. Angelo didn't hesitate, he knew he needed to help. He parked his vehicle at the Pizza Hut where the teen ran behind and told our son he would be right back and to wait in his car, he then hopped over a fence and confronted the teen, worried for other kids and parents safety. Angelo tried everything he could to talk the teen into handing over the gun with no success. The teen ran away once more and Angelo pursued him again when without warning the teen turned arround and shot Angelo 4 times. Angelo hit the ground and tried to pop back up and pursue the teen once more but learned his legs worked no more. Angelo was hit by the bullets in multiple places but the bullet stuck in his spine is causing his paralysis. He has no feeling in his legs and it is not known if he will walk again. He is a hero for all the children's lives as well as parents he protected as school was just releasing. That is the kind of man, husband, father, son and friend he is! Always putting others first.
Angelos best hope of walking again is stem cell therapy, he is actively looking for an Anesthesiologist to help and he is also asking for donations for the therapy’s tremendous prices as they are not covered by his insurance.
Our family business relies heavily on Angelo and this has devastated our family. He has a long recovery ahead of him and will be unable to work and support our family. Not to mention the medical bills which have begun to come in.
Our entire family is very grateful for all of your prayers and support. We know Angelo is strong and has God's healing hands upon him.

God Bless You,
Angelo, Jessica, Grace, Gianni , Isaiah, Jayson and Silvia
