Mario Catania, an 8th grader at H.B. Whitehorne Middle School and a member of Our Lady of the Lake, has started a community service project to benefit a young cousin with a rare disease. It is called “Cookies for Cousin”, and it is designed to aid research into Cardio-Facio-Cutaneous Syndrome. Catania’s cousin Nola was born with the condition, which affects the heart, facial features and skin. It is extremely rare and serious, with only 300 diagnosed cases worldwide according to Catania’s mom, Gina Catania.

To help, Mario Catania is making and selling bags of chocolate chip, peanut butter and sugar cookies. The cookies are $7 a bag and 100% of the proceeds will go to CFC International. To order your cookies, call Mario at 973-857-9026, or e-mail him at [email protected]. Leave your name, phone number and how many bags of cookies you would like and what kinds. You can learn more about CFC here.
