Keeping a Legacy Alive
Mark Engberg's sister, Mary Beth, who lived with cerebral palsy, enjoyed many summers at Easterseals camp. Mark realized then the impact that services provided by Easterseals could have on people with disabilities and their families.
Mark and his wife, Patty, decided to leave a gift in their will to benefit Easterseals and memorialize Mary Beth. They knew their gift would help people with disabilities—like Mary Beth—for generations to come.
"Easterseals has been around for a long time, and with this gift, we're doing our part to make sure they will continue to be around long after we are gone," Mark says. "It is so important that people with disabilities get the services they need."
