October 2011 Highlight: Anna’s Angels
Women For One is honored to announce our Highlighted Organization of the month: ANNA’S ANGELS FOUNDATION
Anna’s Angels provides funds to promote laboratory and clinical research in Down syndrome. A Scientific Advisory panel of leading physicians from Duke University Medical Center as well as Michelle and Andy (Michelle’s husband) review the applications and issue the grants once a year. The foundation’s overall vision is to improve the cognitive and communicative ability of individuals with Down syndrome.
In just 7 years, Anna’s Angels Foundation has raised over $825,000 for Down syndrome research with the enduring generosity of family, friends and the local community. Their goal is to reach the $1 million dollar mark by January 2013.
“I started Anna’s Angels so Anna and other children with Down syndrome would have the best opportunity to live a healthy and independent life. I hope Anna’s Angels will be a gift to Anna and others with Down syndrome. Passion, love, vision, clarity, and dedication created Anna’s Angles and hope will keep me working for years to come.” – Michelle Pfeiffer, Director, Anna’s Angels
