Rosemarie Tutolo Needs Our Help After Emergency in Rome


A GoFundMe has been launched for Roz Tutolo, a mother and nonna who suffered a severe stroke in Rome.

This past spring, longtime ISDA member Rosemarie Tutolo was traveling with her daughter and granddaughter in Italy when tragedy struck.

Just hours before their departure back to Cleveland, Ohio, Rosemarie (Roz) suffered a severe stroke and brain bleed, and was rushed to a hospital in Rome.

She’s now paralyzed on the left side of her body, and had to be flown back to the U.S. in an air ambulance.

The hospital stay and medical flight cost more than $125,000.

Roz is a beloved mother and nonna, surrounded by a loving and grieving family, and she needs our help.

If you can offer support in any way, then please click here and donate to her GoFundMe page.

Please join us in this effort, and help one of our own.

God bless.
