2007 CHARLEROI FEDERAL LITTLE GREAT RACE BENEFICIARY

Christine Greco

Proceeds from the 2007 Charleroi Federal Little Great Race went to Christine Greco who is suffering from Devic's Disease.

I am Christine Greco, my husband is Tony Greco and we have two children, Antonio Greco, age 16, and Nicole Greco, age 13. We also have a 2 year old dog named Kobe. We reside in Carroll Township .

Before being diagnosed with Devic's Disease, I was a healthy, working mother. The onset of Devic's was sudden; it began with temporary loss of my vision and later paralysis from the chest down. With stays at various Pittsburgh hospital and specialized treatments and therapy, I have regained some movement and continue to go to physical therapy with the hope of regaining complete mobility.

With the help of my family, friends, priest, parishioners, co-workers and lots and lots of prayers, I feel I have come a long way. Although Devic's can reoccur unexpectedly, my goal is to live life one day at a time and enjoy each day that we have together.
