“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: My daughter, Abigail Cipoletti is my Gold Ribbon Heroe. Abigail was diagnosed with a Choroid Plexus Carcinoma at 3 months of age. She endured 2 12-15 hour brain surgeries, brain shunt placement surgery and chemotherapy during the1st year of her life. Everything in Abigail’s life was wait and see, according to the neurosurgeon post brain surgery and was given a 5% chance of survival. She has defied the odds and has become a smart, sassy, funny, sweet 6 year old little girl, who loves karate and playing baseball. Abigail is my heroe!!” – Alison C.
