Josie's Story

Lifetime of joy in a short time with us

Josie was 110% the "girlie-girl" - she loved tea parties, Barbies, Hello Kitty, and, most of all, playing dress-up.  She brought a lifetime of joy to the lives she touched before losing her battle with Mitochondrial Disease on April 23, 2006, at the age of 4.  

Since then, we looked at ways to learn and grow from our experiences, as well as for ways to help other children and families facing similar circumstances. We successfully found a way to help others through Josie Mazzo Children's Charities, founded February 2007.  Special thanks to our friends and family for supporting us.  We couldn't have done it without you!

Thank you!
