Dr. Gianna Emanuela Molla, MD, is the daughter for whom Saint Gianna Beretta Molla gave her life. She works full time, with great joy, enthusiasm and deepest gratitude to Our Lord, to spread around the world, particularly in the United States, the example, testimony and spirituality of her Saint Mother and of her holy father, Pietro. Formerly, Gianna Emanuela practiced as a geriatrician at the Geriatric Institute, “Camillo Golgi” in Abbiategrasso, Milan. In 2003, she left her profession to care for her beloved Father who had serious health problems until he died in 2010 at the age of almost 98.
