The SRF mourns the loss of former board member Daniel Morton, who passed away last month. He joined the board of the SRF in the early ’90s, after reading a New York Times article featuring SRF founder Sharon Monsky.
“He was the kind of person who would be moved by a newspaper story of Sharon Monsky’s courageous fight, seek her out, join the fight for a cure, and stay with it for over 20 years until he retired,” says SRF Board Member Deann Wright. “Although Dan had no personal connections to scleroderma other than those he forged at the SRF, he was a driving force on the SRF board for decades.”
SRF Board Member Susan Feniger remembers how “his admiration of Sharon was just surreal. Dan was our guiding light, a force that was always there for us in the beginning days.”
We’ll always remember Dan’s leadership and lifelong passionate commitment. “All of us at the SRF are grateful to have had Dan and his generous spirit in our lives and working with us on our mission to cure scleroderma,” Deann says. “Dan, you will always be with us.”
