Tracie Nicastro and Family

Travie was on her way to making a full recovery from a brain tumor before things took a turn for the worse in December. The family has since been overwhelmed with medical expenses, travel expenses, and lost income.

There has already been a tremendous outpouring of support for the Nicastro Family, but they still have a longĀ road of recovery ahead of them and every bit helps.

Service Dogs for Patients

There is an ongoing campaign to raise money for a five-year-old girl named Hailey who has suffered through an enormous amount of medical problems.

The funds will be used to provide the family with a medical alert dog that will be specially trained dog that can monitor her blood sugar levels and watch for other medical issues that might threaten her.
