Denis’ beloved wife, Christie, was diagnosed with ALS in 2009, and courageously fought this debilitating disease with the grace and dignity that she lived by. Her battle ceased when she passed in 2019. Denis is a devoted, loving and involved dad to the couple’s daughter, Francesca. Because of this very personal involvement with ALS, Denis is passionate about finding a cure in the foreseeable future.
