About Carmella Rose Santalucia


Carmella Rose Santalucia was a courageous woman whose life was an example strength, dignity and respect for all people. Throughout her illness, she demonstrated the importance of a patient’s partnership with her caregiver, and the impact of this relationship on health outcomes. Although she had adequate insurance and a strong network of family helping her throughout her healthcare journey, she still had difficulty navigating the complex healthcare system.

Her experiences made it clear to her family and friends that every patient needs help finding the appropriate physical and emotional support during times of illness, as well as tools to stay organized.

Carmella Rose Santalucia inspired her daughter, Carol Santalucia, to establish the Carmella Rose Health Foundation in her memory to provide assistance, navigation, and resources to those in need.
