Hi Family and Friends,

Will you help me raise some money to stick it to this horrible disease? The LLS is one of the country's leading groups for leukemia research funding, patient and caregiver support, and cancer advocacy.

Marla and I will match all donations up to $300, and Boston Scientific (my incredibly supportive employer) will match anything I put in. I just found this event, and haven't left much time to fundraise...but lets see what we can do! It will be me and my 9 year old buddy (Luca) making the trek to the top of the Capella Tower. And we're working on getting Ava in on the action too!   :) And this isn't just for Bella. It's also for sweet Braxton. This past week, our neighbors and friends got a diagnosis of leukemia for their 9 year old daughter Braxton. She started chemo Thursday. This is for her too. Thanks as always for all the love and support. We are eternally grateful for such wonderful family and friends. 

Here's some info on then event...I hope we make it!


Big Climb MPLS 
February 16, 2019
Capella Tower 

The Big Climb MPLS is an exhilarating, one-of-a-kind, stair-climbing event, providing an opportunity for participants to challenge themselves and climb a whole bunch of stairs.

53 or 105 flights of them.

Our team will take on the tallest vertical challenge in the Upper Midwest by raising money and conquering Capella Tower on February 16 to help the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society raise $225,000 for the mission.

Please support our team in the challenge by helping us reach our fundraising goal. By giving a donation today, you can help bring us closer to a world without blood cancer.  

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere we thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit lls.org.


Yea! Team Bella Grace rocks! Love you, Carolyn H.
Carolyn Harbaugh,
Good Luck with the climb from Anthony and Marcy Petrocelli. Lets go ahead and exceed that goal. Thoughts and prayers are with Bella, her siblings, her parents and her grandparents especially Vic and Carmie. If we can do anything here in Monroeville for the family please let us know.
Anthony andMarcy Petrocelli,
The Antimarinos are sending lots of prayers and positivity to Bella and Braxton's family. Climb onward!!!
