Rocco is a friendly, fun-loving 8-year-old who attends school at P.S. 153.

Like many boys his age, Rocco loves WWE, Minecraft, and Marvel Super Heroes.

Rocco was recently diagnosed with leukemia.

In addition to starting chemotherapy, Rocco has also needed multiple blood

transfusions. His blood type is O+. Rocco’s family is struggling with the

financial burden of costly treatments while trying to care for their little boy.

One of Rocco’s fondest memories is going to the beach this past summer with his aunt

Terri, when an enterprising seagull swooped down and stole the sandwich he was eating!

Rocco’s family hopes to have the chance to make new memories for many years to come.

Your donation will help Rocco’s family with the expenses

for the treatments he so desperately needs!

If you are unable to make a monetary donation, please consider donating blood to an area

hospital, so that Rocco, and other people in such dire situations, have a fighting chance

We are all going to stand with ROCCO in his fight against LEUKEMIA!!

Please use the button above to donate.  All donations will be sent to Rocco’s family

    I am so sorry to hear about Rocco. When my dad was diagnosed with lymphoma and I reached out to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. They were amazing with all the help, resources, and support for me and my family. I hope that they can help Rocco and his family in some way. You can go to
    They have been amazing. I currently fundraise for them and take part in the Queens Light The Night Walk. I hope this info can help this family in some way.
