Remembering a Fallen Hero

Officer Michael Califano, a decorated police officer in the First Precinct Police Department in Nassau County, father of 3, and a loving husband, was tragically killed in a car crash on February 5th, 2011.

Officer Califano and his family were long-time supporters of St. Mary’s Hospital for Children and spent many nights by the bedside of their 1-year old daughter Michaela, who lost the battle to a congenital heart condition.

On behalf of the entire St. Mary’s family, we send our deepest sympathies to Officer Califano’s family. He truly was a hero and he will be dearly missed.
