Cammy Franzese was the oldest of seven children. Her father was a radical Chicano rights activist, while her mother was a devout Christian woman who, despite her husband’s radical ways, raised her children to seek God first.
Cammy was a member of a prominent dance team when she was chosen to dance in the movie Knights of the City, where she captured the heart of the film’s executive producer, Michael Franzese. She and Michael were married in 1985.
Cammy played a major role in her infamous husband’s decision to walk away from his former life and was once described as “the woman who changed the face of organized crime in America.” While Michael has become a public symbol of a man changed by the grace of God, Cammy has been his rock, standing by him through his struggles.
Cammy is always willing to share her testimony with others, encouraging them in the knowledge that God is the foundation upon which a healthy relationship is built.
