Antonio Ciccone was a promising young athlete and scholar, juggling multiple AP classes and varsity sports at Fox Lane High School, when tragedy struck in the spring of 2001, his senior year. During the first varsity lacrosse game of the season, Antonio was severely injured in a collision with another player.

The injury fractured his 4th and 5th vertebrae and damaged his spinal cord, rendering Antonio paralyzed in all four limbs. He was diagnosed as a c4, c5 incomplete quadriplegic and was 18 years old. Confined to a wheelchair and dependent on others for his basic needs, Antonio has endured multiple misfortunes and setbacks in the years since, but remains incredibly optimistic and upbeat. As with many people who suffer from paralysis, Antonio’s medical, physical and occupational therapy needs greatly exceed insurance coverage and we are appealing to you for help. Antonio is currently completing his bachelor’s degree online at New School University and hopes to become a lawyer. He believes he will walk again and is eager to resume physical therapy in mid June, after a lengthy lapse.

I attended this year's (2018) LAXIN4Tony girls lacrosse tournament at Fox Lane High School. Got to see Tony taking pictures with young lacrosse players and others who have followed the annual event for years. Looking forward to contributing to the Wheels4Tony campaign so Tony can get a vehicle needed to take him to and from work (new job) and college.

Although Tony Ciccone was dealt an impossible hand in his senior year in high school, he and his very special mother (Linda) have remained strong. Linda is his main caregiver and is so caring and supportive of everyone. Let's see how much we can help them with donations.
