Welcome to Violet Tantillo's CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep our beloved family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.
On Tuesday morning, May 16th, my mom suffered a heart attack and aortic dissection. There have been complications and she is currently in the ICU.
Given that she is in critical care, she is currently NOT able to see visitors or receive flowers, for fear of infection. As many of you have reached out eager to lend hand, we created this website to help guide our next steps.
We will update the site as often as possible, to inform you of mom's progress. Please see the attached calendar, if you are able to assist with freezer meals, yard work or simple groceries.
Thank you for respecting the NO visitors or flowers policy. It is of utmost importance that we give mom the space and time to heal. Cards would be a great way to let mom know you care! Please send them to my parent's house:
Patrick and Violet Tantillo 204 S. Ridgeland Oak Park, IL. 60302
Mom will not be answering her phone at this time. Please feel free to connect with the family at the numbers below:
