FISHING FOR A CURE
Adriano's wife says he easily gets lost in the summertime in the oceans of New Jersey, fishing for the biggest and tastiest fish to bring home. Coming from a big Italian family, they all love his FRESH fish deliveries over the summer months, creating family get-togethers to share the feasts. His greatest passion is his family which erupts from his Italian traditions.
That is why THIS CAUSE is very dear to his heart.
His mamma Palmina, after losing her husband in Italy, ventured to the United States 44 years ago as a single mom with 8 children to provide them with opportunities. The children have the utmost respect for their mamma. She lost her life to Alzheimer's 5 years ago, July 4th, after battling it for 10 years. Recently he lost his beloved brother-in-law, Nicola Lusi, to Alzheimer's, who was diagnosed shortly after retirement and battled for 7 years.
This family has kept positive and cared for their love ones dearly as they watched these two family members fight the hardest they could but the disease took them over. Adriano is committed to keep awareness alive and find a cure!
