Melissa Saccoccio Cancer Fund

Melissa Saccoccio is a Physical Therapist, and an Adjunct Professor at the Community College of Rhode Island. She earned her entry level degree in physical therapy in 1995, then earned honors when graduating with her DPT from Boston University in 2006. Having more than 20 years of diverse experiences, Melissa, mother of 3, has been involved with teaching a great number of courses in the rehabilitative health department at CCRI, and also works as a PT at ProActive Physical Therapy in Narragansett, RI.  She is deeply devoted to her students, her patients, and her family, and is always there when needed. Now Melissa is in need, having previously battled breast cancer, the cancer has now returned.  Melissa had to take a leave of absence from work to seek treatment.  Any donations, large or small, will help supplement the lost income her family is experiencing, and help Melissa as she continues her fight.
