Mighty Matteo's Cancer Fight

On behalf of Jen & Anthony (TJ) Ferruzzi, collectively as close friends and family, we are starting a page to help support them and their 3 children Nico, Matteo & Nicolette as they face a very challenging time.  Their 4-year-old son, Matteo has recently been diagnosed with Brain Cancer. In the short weeks since his diagnosis, along with a battery of tests, Matteo has already endured two brain surgeries to mitigate the effects of his tumor. Due to the unfortunate health crisis at this time, Matteo was encouraged to leave the hospital shortly after his latest procedure, further complicating the situation. In a few weeks, Matteo will begin Chemotherapy treatments for the next 12-15 months. 

 We can all relate to the fact that when going through difficult times, not having to worry about food shopping, meals, and everyday tasks can relieve a lot of stress. The funds raised here will go directly to supporting the Ferruzzi family during this unimaginable time. No child or parent should ever have to endure this. 

Matteo is an avid superhero fan, Hulk being his favorite.  Let’s all be a superhero today!

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you!
