Local law firm is sending terminally ill boy on ‘bucket list’ trip to DC!

For Rosanna Berardi it was an easy decision.

When the managing partner of Berardi Immigration Law read the Totally Buffalo story about 9-year-old Sebastian Bradley, she knew she had to help.

The Williamsville boy is suffering from a brain tumor and sadly, there is no treatment that will help. His family is now focused on giving him experiences; they want to make memories and spend as much quality time together as possible. So, they came up with a bucket list – and on the list is a trip to Washington, D.C.

Rosanna Berardi read that and immediately sent me a message saying that her firm would like to sponsor Sebastian’s trip to D.C.

Berardi Immigration Law will pick up the tab for airfare and hotel accommodations for the entire family!

Rosanna says she believes strongly in supporting our community,  “I have a healthy 11-year-old and never, ever take that for granted. I have a sign in my office that says “health is wealth” and I live by that motto. I am happy to provide some fun to a family who is going through hard times. It’s an honor to help them.”

It’s really more proof of the wonderful, generous spirit of Western New York.

Sebastian is also hoping to receive many Christmas cards. If you would like to send one – here is the address.

Williamsville boy with terminal cancer wants Christmas cards and to complete a 4-item bucket list. Can you help?
