Who is Pietro?
A Mission of Love; A Fight for a Cure
Pietro is our beautiful, happy son who is perfect in every way, a true blessing. You’d never know that this precious little boy who was born on May 14, 2009 is today battling a fatal muscle-wasting disease that could cripple, even kill him, way too early in his life. From the moment he entered this world, Pietro was cool, calm and collected. Waiting in the nursery for him, we prepared ourselves for a crying, fussy baby, as the loud cries of other babies filled the room. But when the nurse carted Pietro in, he was quiet. Looking into his bassinet, we saw only an intent gaze and all smiles, no tears.
