AFTD’s Partners in FTD Care


AFTD Kids and Teens



The Dr. Lawrence Albert Memorial Fund – Established by the Arnow Family, the Dr. Lawrence Albert Memorial Fund was created to pay tribute to their father, a loving man who valued spirited intellectual discussion and science. The Fund’s focus is on providing learning opportunities to professionals in the field of FTD research, who aim to find effective treatments, and one day, a cure. Generous gifts like this one are critical to AFTD’s ability to advance both research and support. To learn more about Dr. Albert, who lived with PPA, please click here. For information on establishing a Named Fund, contact Development Manager Pam McGonigle at:, or 267-758-8648.
