Anne Rosenblum's Story
A commitment Anne Rosenblum made nearly three decades ago has provided valuable funding for asthma research and care. In addition to her regular giving, Anne chose to include National Jewish Health in her will. As a result, she is leaving a lasting legacy to help people with this increasingly common condition – the leading cause of emergency department visits for children in the United States.
“I have had asthma since childhood,” she said. “When my father passed away in the 1980s, I vowed that I would always give money to National Jewish Health in his name. I hope that my daughter will carry on the tradition.”
She first learned of the hospital as a teenager, when she attended a fundraiser for National Jewish Health in New York City. A few years later, Anne read an article in Parade magazine about the asthma research and treatment programs here.
“It captured my imagination. I wanted to be part of the solution to help children breathe better,” she said.
Because Anne has named National Jewish Health in her will, she is part of the National Jewish Health Legacies of Hope, a society established to recognize all supporters who have included National Jewish Health in their wills or other estate and financial plans. Anne’s support, now and in the future, ensures that care and research for asthma will continue.
“Biomedical research is very important to me. I hope they will find a cure for asthma someday.”
