My Story

Marissa Pino was a beautiful, bright little girl; at age 13 she was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. Missy fought hard for almost 5 years, spending all of her teen years in and out of hospitals. Through all her treatment she was always happy and smiling, she loved being around people, she loved playing golf, volleyball, basketball and soccer. Marissa, like most kids loved playing video games and playing on her computer. Marissa also loved animals, she had three dogs and a baby rabbit. Marissa went to heaven on June 6, 2009; she left an unexplainable void in our hearts! Missy, Jody, Daddy and I love and miss you so very much!
