Sixteen year old soccer player, Gianna Cirella of Warwick faced a challenge too great to fight without a team. Within days of developing a sore throat, Gianna developed pneumonia and sepsis, a life-threatening infection in her blood. After a 16-day fight for her life, Gianna passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on November 1, 2017.
