NEW CASTLE —
IT’S ABOUT CELEBRATING
Today, Razzano lives a full and happy life.
“Anthony wants to celebrate,” Katie said. “He is happy to be alive and very proud that he made it through.”
Although Halloween is a tough day for her and her husband, Katie wants it to be fun for their children.
“He’s a great example for me and the kids,” she noted. “I can say to them to look at what your father got through — he lost all five fingers on his left hand and still golfs.”
The word “no” is not an option.
“I don’t let anything hold me back and tell others the same thing,” Razzano said. “I am fortunate, blessed and thankful for all the prayers through the years.”
He admits to living with limitations but does everything in his power to tackle them.
Most people, by looking at Razzano, aren’t aware that he lives every single day in pain.
“I don’t focus on it.”
This very special Oct. 31 will be observed by a family dinner to celebrate making it through a difficult tragedy together.
“This is almost like a birthday,” Razzano pointed out. “I feel like I had a miracle take place.”
He noted, that as a 12-year-old boy, his goal was to be normal. Following the accident, he had to do what he could to resume a normal life.
“In life, you have to adapt to circumstances. We’re all faced with tragic circumstances and each one of us bears scars — some are internal and some you can see.”
Razzano said from a tragedy, he has learned many lessons.
Most of all, he wants to be an example to others that obstacles and adversity can be overcome.
