A blog about the grief after losing a child to Niemann Pick, Type C, a rare disease, and how I'm moving forward with my life.

Legacy of Hope

October is Niemann Pick Disease Awareness Month.

The NNPDF has started a new program called "Legacy of Hope"

What is the Legacy of Hope?
The Legacy of Hope is a program of the National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation (NNPDF) that allows you (the Donor) to create a legacy for your family and to make a larger charitable gift than you might think is possible, while receiving some immediate benefits in the process.

How does leaving a Legacy of Hope work?
The Legacy of Hope utilizes various gift-giving strategies (such as bequests, beneficiary designations and  life insurance gifts) that will transfer part of your estate to the NNPDF at some time in the future without requiring cash right now.

Why should you leave a Legacy?
A Legacy gift will allow you to support the NNPDF in its essential mission of finding a cure for Niemann-Pick Disease and providing support services to individuals and families who suffer from this deadly disease.

What do you need to do to participate?
Contact the NNPDF office and we will assist you in completing the process, working together with your attorney and/or financial consultant or estate planner if you wish.
