To assist those in the community attend and participate in this year’s Voice of the Patient Weekend, HNF is awarding a limited number of travel scholarships of up to $1000 USD.
Dorothy J. Fairman passed away on Wednesday, October 28, 2015 in Tucson, AZ at the age of 70. She had Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease Type 1A and died of respiratory failure secondary to CMT.
Dorothy never discussed her CMT diagnosis. However, one of her last conversations with her daughter, Joy Aldrich, was about how proud she was of Joy’s role as Advocacy Director for HNF. Given a bit more time, Dorothy surely would have become a very vocal advocate for the impactful work HNF is doing to support CMT patients and families. Dorothy generously named HNF as a beneficiary in her Trust, and this Travel Scholarship would have been something she would have been proud to offer.
To qualify for the Dorothy J. Fairman Memorial Travel Scholarship, you must be a Patient/Caregiver of CMT/IN patient in attendance at the Voice of the Patient Weekend on Sept, 28-29 2018. A check for reimbursement of travel expenses up to $1000 USD will be issued on 9/29 (subject to completed expense form/receipts).
