Rose Cipriano Attends Son's Football Game in Novi
A Facebook group for the Cipriano family is flooded with well-wishes after the Farmington Hills mother injured in an April attack takes the field Friday, during a Detroit Catholic Central game.
Friends and family of Rose Cipriano are calling her appearance at Friday's Detroit Catholic Central High School football game in Novi "a miracle".
Rose, who is recovering from severe injuries she suffered five months ago in a brutal attack that also wounded her son, Salvatore, and took the life of her husband, Robert, walked hand in hand onto the field with Salvatore's twin brother, Tanner. Senior players and their mothers were recognized during the game.
Tanner, a National Merit Scholarship semifinalist, plays tight end and defensive lineman for the Shamrocks. Salvatore also remains on the Catholic Central 2012 roster, even though he is still in a rehab facility recovering from his injuries.
Through the weekend, family members and friends shared comments and photos about the event on the "Cipriano Support Page", a group established on Facebook in April that today has 5,515 members.
The oldest Cipriano son, Tucker, will be back in court on Sept. 25, facing felony charges related to the assaults on Rose and Salvatore, and the murder of Robert Cipriano. Mitchell Young, who was also charged, returns to court Sept. 26.
