Mary Ann lost her father Edward J. Sciaba, Sr. to Lou Gehrig’s Disease in 1998. She began volunteering in the A.L.S community soon after, using her administrative background to raise funds and assist patients with their financial difficulties. She and co-founder Donna Jordan met through their volunteerism and decided to create the kind of organization they wished had been available when their loved ones were battling this disease. Together they formed the A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation in 2001.
