Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting. Mario, ("Bud" as most of us refer to him) is a loving and dedicated husband and father of three. He has always been the source of strength in our family, so now is the time for us to give him our strength. On Friday, November 1,  2019 Bud suffered a massive stroke leaving him partially paralyzed. He is in great hands at Westchester Medical Center Neurological ICU and is surrounded by his loved ones. We are so grateful for the love and support we have received. We will be using this site to keep family and friends updated throughout his recovery. We urge everyone to use this site as an outlet for positivity. We will do our best to keep everyone in the loop as much as possible. Please bear with us through this time and remain hopeful. Bud is a strong man and always has been. If there is anyone who can make it out of this, it's him.
