More about the Rodino Family...
The Rodino Family has been fighting Huntington's Disease. This debilitating terminal disease took the life of their 8-year-old daughter, Rachel,
in 2010. Rick Rodino, husband and father of the family, is now in the later stages of the disease and requires 24-hour care from Lori,  his wife. Recently, their 20-year-old son, Anthony, and their 19-year-old daughter, Gianna, have both been diagnosed with the disease. Friends and neighbors are trying to help ease their financial struggles and ensure they can stay in the comfort of their own home during this difficult time.
