Aimee Ackell Is Investing In A Cure
Aimee Ackell—teacher, author, and motivational speaker—has lupus. Her sister had lupus and died of kidney failure. Aimee honored her sister’s life by starting the Ann Caroline Corrody Fund with us.
"I turned my struggles and my sister’s challenges into a positive experience,” Aimee says. “Through my fund at the Long Island Community Foundation, I donate money to lupus organizations for research, to find a cure.”
We are honored that Aimee chose the Long Island Community Foundation to do her giving. You can do the same.
