  • $10,000.00 Donation!!!!

    The Elizabeth T. McNamee Memorial fund has donated $10,000.00 this year to the HCMA.
    Elizabeth was a beautiful, talented and intelligent young lady who passed away at the age of 25 in 1998. Elizabeth was a Harvard graduate who was attending her 3rd year of law school at NYU. She was not diagnosed and her death alerted the family that HCM was something they needed to learn about. Elizabeth had been an avid runner. Each year her family runs a 5K run in her memory and the proceeds come to the HCMA.
    We are very honored to receive these funds and will put them to good use.

    It was clear by Elizabeth’s life and hard work that she was destine to make her mark on the world and change it for the better - her family has ensured that her energy and wisdom lives on.

    Please join us in thanking the entire McNamee Family for the hard work that helps us continue our mission!

    God Bless Elizabeth - one of our many angels watching from above.

    Knowledge is power ... Stay informed!
