The past year has been anything but normal for the Cirrito brothers.

“He was going back and forth to Roswell and eventually he declined quickly,” said Charles Cirrito. Charles is the oldest of seven brothers. Their father, Charles, a single dad, was diagnosed with lung cancer. He died in the summer of 2016.

The youngest Cirrito brothers are in middle school. The oldest, also named Charles, spends most of his time in Jamestown. That leaves the two twin, middle brothers. They're 20, working full time, and now they have custody of their two younger brothers.

The past six months has been difficult for the Cirritos. Their father’s funeral was a financial burden.

The family is about to be get help from an unlikely source. Their insurance agent working with the boys decided to help. She's holding a benefit for the brothers.

The year has been anything but normal for the Cirritos. But, with help from each other, and their community, they're looking to find their new normal.
