For the first time in more than seven years, 11-year-old Frederick Mariano will eat Christmas dinner with his family, thanks to life-saving surgery at Shriners Hospital for Children in Boston.
His surgery resulted from a new effort of the Cevicos Mission of the Holy Family Parish on Cape Ann. North Shore residents have long supported the parish’s mission in the Dominican Republic, which began in 1999. The partnership with Shriners, which brings children to Massachusetts for treatment, began a couple of years ago.
