Tassy Filsaime survived the earthquake of Haiti, but his life was threatened by a tumor in his cheek. That’s where Ian Rosenberger came in and he founded Team Tassy.

The organization helped raise money to bring Tassy to Pittsburgh to undergo surgery. The surgery was successful and he is doing well.

He’s doing so well, that he was back in Pittsburgh Thursday night at another fundraising event for two other Haitians who are in need of medical care.

For more information about the group and how to make a donation, visit MeetTassy.org.
