Moon Area School District

Rocco Otto is a soon-to-be 16-year-old student who, after witnessing the effects of juvenile diabetes and childhood cancer on his friends and family, founded his own non-profit organization, The No Child Fights Alone Foundation.

The organization’s mission is to lead the fight against childhood cancer and diabetes through research funding, medical assistance for families and support for multicultural communities.

Rocco believes that he has a strong calling to help others. Through his work, he wants to support families throughout the area in whatever ways he can – from providing medical equipment to children, financially supporting families, investing in research, or anything in between.
