THANK YOU TO ALL WHO HELPED WITH THE USS CARES FOR FAMILIES YARD SALE
A big thank you to all our volunteers and everyone that helped make this event a success. We managed to raise $3,400 to donate to the Trinca family and Marisa Carney (ROHHAD Foundation Inc.). To see pictures of this event checkout our photogallery for USS Cares for Families Yard Sale.
On October 8 2011, Keri Trinca and her three children were in a motor vehicle accident in Manorville, NY. Tragically, 30-year-old Keri and seven-year-old Jason Jr. lost their lives on that day. The two other children miraculously survived but have undergone extensive medical treatments.
Five-year-old Marisa Carney was diagnosed with an extremely rare childhood brain disorder called ROHHAD that causes uncontrollable obesity and breathing problems, putting the afflicted at risk for seizures, cardiac arrest and death. There are only 75 documented cases worldwide, no known cause and no cure.
