I received this information from Dr. Kathleen Rice Simpson, Editor-in-Chief of MCN: The American Journal of Maternal Child Nursing:
In lieu of flowers, Margaret asked that donations be made to the March of Dimes Nursing Program. Contributions to this special fund in Margaret’s memory can be made directly through the website at www.marchofdimes.org (click on “donate now,” and then be sure to indicate that the donation is being made in memory of Margaret Freda). These donations will be tracked and restricted for nursing education. Alternatively, you can send a check made payable to March of Dimes to Mary Lavan at the March of Dimes (1275 Mamaroneck Avenue; White Plains, NY 10605; (914) 997-4609) and Mary will be sure it is processed correctly.
