About Us

Co-founders Sue and Paul Rosenau

We created The Legacy of Angels Foundation in 2008. After the loss of our first grandchild to Krabbe disease in 2003 we wanted to focus our philanthropy on the education and awareness of this disease and help fund research for better treatments and ultimately a cure for Krabbe disease. In addition to Krabbe disease, we also wanted to help fund research for Cystic Fibrosis (CF). As a result of genetic testing of our children after the loss of our granddaughter, CF was also discovered in our family. Because newborn screening is key to early diagnosis and treatment of both diseases, education and support of newborn screening complete the philanthropic focus of our family foundation. The Legacy of Angels Foundation is a private grantmaking organization with a preference for leveraged, strategic funding. Applications are by invitation only.
