I am one of seven children; I wasborninPaterson,NewJerseyandlivedtherefor a few months when my parents, whowere immigrants,decided tomoveback toSicily. We lived there for around one yearbeforemyolderbrotherand Igotsick.ThedoctorsinSicilycouldnotfindoutwhatwaswrong with us so they told my parents totakeusbacktotheUSbecausethemedicalfacilities there were much better, so wecameback to theUSand thedoctors spottedtheproblemandfoundacure.AfterthatmyparentsdecidedtostayintheUS.
