~ In Memory Of ~
a devoted husband, caring father, loving grandfather, supportive brother & constant friend
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - Larry’s family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the
March of Dimes
President Franklin Roosevelt's personal struggle with polio led him to create the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis at a time when polio was on the rise. Better known as the March of Dimes, the foundation established a polio patient aid program and funded research for vaccines developed by Jonas Salk, MD and Albert Sabin, MD. These vaccines effectively ended the epidemic polio in the U.S.
Its original mission accomplished, the foundation turned its focus to preventing birth defects and infant mortality. The March of Dimes has led the way to discover the genetic causes of birth defects, to promote newborn screening, and to educate medical professionals and the public about best practices for healthy pregnancy. The organization has supported research for surfactant therapy to treat respiratory distress, helped initiate the system of regional neonatal intensive care for premature and sick babies and its Folic Acid Campaign achieved a dramatic reduction in the incidence of neural tube defects, birth defects of the brain and spine.
