To the Loved Ones of Alida Mary Verdone:
This page is to honor the memory of Alida by raising funds to support the mission of UNICEF in 190 countries.
In lieu of flowers, our family asks for contributions in Alida's name on this page.
Her son Alex is part of UNICEF NextGeneration Young Professionals in New York City, which is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for UNICEF's life-saving work. He was always inspired by his mother's strong determination to fundraise for many important causes such as cancer research through her 12 recent half-marathon walks.
As a member of the biotechnology industry, Alex is passionate about expanding access to medicines for patients around the world. All donations from this page will be directed toward UNICEF's Immunization programs. UNICEF is the world's largest purchaser of vaccines, procuring an average of 2.5 billion doses each year reaching 45% of the world's children.
We thank you kindly for your support.
Alex Verdone, Anthony Verdone, JoAnna Vitale
