The Story

Rosie Colucci, 12-year-old brain cancer warrior, is hoping for a miracle to get her family a home. Last year, she helped her family win a car through petitioning on social media. If anyone knows about miracles, it's Rosie. She is a living example! Rosie's cancer diagnosis came on her third birthday. Since then, she has faced life head on, maintaining her fun-loving attitude and sense of humor.

This family has fallen on hard times more often than they can count. A simple conversation with them would never reveal the insane amount of stress they're under. Faced with job loss, divorce, bankruptcy, homelessness, and medical bills, the Colucci family has no income yet mounting expenses. Despite their hardships, they still have HOPE!

These inspirational advocates of pediatric cancer research and Neurofibromatosis awareness petition for their cause every day. They touch countless hearts and give so much of themselves for the betterment of others, in the midst of all their struggles. Rosie’s family volunteers for organizations like the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, DemonTHON, and Chicago Dance Marathon. In nine years, they've generated over $800,000 for charity and cancer research. Rosie has received several awards for her philanthropy, including the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Miracle Child 2016, Kid of the Year 2015, Red Cross Good Youth Samaritan 2014 and top overall fundraiser 2008-2014 for Chicago Dance Marathon. This kid is a powerhouse, and her positive attitude is unbelievable. She likes to goof around, but she is serious about funding a cure for childhood cancer, as well as finding her family a home!

Please consider a small donation for this family in need. Return some of the hope and inspiration that Rosie gives to others. If you cannot donate, please share Rosie's story with your family and friends!
