Hasbrouck Heights Girl with Cerebral Palsy Gets Special Holiday Visit from Female NJ State Police Trooper

By Jerry DeMarco

An 8-year-old Hasbrouck Heights girl with severe cerebral palsy had one of her fondest holiday wishes granted with a visit from a female New Jersey state trooper who served in Iraq. Yet it was the trooper who insisted that she was most grateful.

“She has such an inspiring story, so much more than I can even describe,” Trooper Alina Spies told CLIFFVIEW PILOT this afternoon.

Giulianna Moore beamed through the day that trooper spent with her, her mother, Pasqualina, her two sisters — 10-year-old Angelina and 2½-year-old Isabella — and other family members.

“Her mother described it as love at first site,” Spies said.

“She’s an amazing and inspiring girl, and she has a wonderful family,” she said. “They give so much to Make a Wish and to other children in need. They’re beautiful inside and out.”

Giulianna’s grandfather had written to the State Police seeking support for Walk for Wishes, which last month raised $36,889 for the little angel. Spies brought the family plenty more.

Giulianna, who’s wheelchair-bound and requires a feeding tube and constant assistance, always wanted to meet a female trooper.
