Dennis and his wife, Mary, have five beautiful grandchildren. Two of their grandsons (Dylan and Sean) have been diagnosed with ataxia-telangiectasia, more commonly known as A-T.
A-T is an extremely rare, genetic disease. A-T causes progressive loss of muscle control, immune system problems and a high rate of cancer. Sean is already a cancer survivor. He was treated for B-cell lymphoma when he was 2 years old.
Because A-T is so rare, it gets little attention and even less funding. The A-T Children’s Project (atcp.org) was started to raise funds for research and life improving therapies for children with A-T.
Danny Greene and John Nardi tried to muscle in on the Cleveland Mob’s operations. The result was a bloody mob war that left Cleveland with the moniker “Bomb City USA!”

The Prohibition Era was the bloodiest period in Cleveland History. Try to keep track of the mob hits as rival gangs brutally battle to control the city’s rackets.
