Richard Formica and family

On Friday, February 16th Richie suffered a stroke while at work at 485 Lexington Avenue. He was immediately transported to Cornell Medical Center where his health continued to deteriorate. Unfortunately the next day, Richie took a bad fall further complicating his already fragile state. Within 48 hours of being under medical care, Richie underwent two critical brain surgeries to try and reverse the impacts of the strokes he suffered. Richie is a fighter, and he is fighting an difficult battle, the battle of his life. We need to come together to help support his family through this challenging time.

His wife Bernadette and two children Alexandra and Nicholas are by Richie’s side day in and day out. We need to be by their side, we need to help relieve whatever burden we can so they can continue to focus on the most important man in their life . . . their rock, their support system, their everything. Please help donate, we know Richie would provide the same for us. Let’s make this effort a huge success.
