Montecuollo family is gifted presents that will help create special memories

"We are all in this together"

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)- Today the Montecuollo family was given more than just presents to unwrap, but opportunities to make memories together.

“For people of the community to think about our children, especially as we near Christmas time and we think about what is tough for us and the uncertainties, this is pretty awesome,” said Seth Montecuollo a father of four battling brain cancer.

SETH Montecuollo has been diagnosed with glioblastoma, a terminal form of brain cancer.

“We weren’t sure what this season would be like, and is doing great with his treatments and this is amazing,” said wife, Dawn Montecuollo.

Each gift was thought out to help this family make special memories, from a family year pass to the zoo, to an outdoor movie projector.  The Montecuollo family is grateful for these special moments, as their family motto is “We are in this together.”

“Dawn and Seth both just are the first ones to step in and say, happy to help wherever we are needed, and it’s so great that you guys are here to help them. They have struggled all year, with all the things that come with cancer,” said Rhonda Berens the nominator.

The united family was nothing but smiles today.

“Thank you for everything, we are very grateful for everything that was given to us,” said Dawn Montecuollo.

A special thanks to Union Bank and Trust for helping make the Magic Moment happen.
