Get to know our story
The foundation was established to honor Kevin Harvey by his wife Esther and children Meghan and Jim Roscoe, Keith and Vanessa Harvey, and Shannon and Nick Macca. Kevin was diagnosed with FTD in 2007 and passed away in 2012 at the age of 57. To honor Kevin's memory with dignity and respect, we've made it our mission to help those who unfortunately are impacted by this devastating and debilitating disease. To accomplish this mission, we established;
The Connecticut Frontotemporal Dementia Foundation, Inc.
Promote the funding necessary for research in finding the cause, therapies, and cures for FTD
Support those diagnosed with FTD along with their families and caregivers
Educate health professionals so that they have the knowledge and skills to work with FTD patients and families
Advocate with Public Officials to provide adequate and appropriate programs and services
