The parents of Christian Trincucci, 6, of Italy, recently
posted that he needed medical attention in America due to a
neurological disorder that specialists in Italy and France could
not treat. After reading about Christian, Filippo and Sonya
DiPaolo, members of Auburn's Cultural Italian American
Organization, contacted Paolo and Anna Saltarello, who brought the
story to the attention of the organization's board. Anna spoke
about it at CIAO's annual Christopher Columbus Recognition
Dinner, and guests donated $1,800 to help bring Christian to a
clinic in New Jersey for treatment. He arrived with his mother Oct.
23, and Paolo and the DiPaolas stayed with them during their
three-day visit. The visit proved helpful to Christian, who should
be returning to everyday activities, CIAO said in a news release.
