Esther’s Friends, The Esther Viola Frey Memorial Foundation
Esther’s Friends, The Esther Viola Frey Memorial Foundation, was formed to honor Esther, who passed away from complications from her rare genetic disorder, in a way that was fitting with her life. During Esther’s two short years she never met a person who didn’t instantly become her friend. Thus, Esther’s Friends provides support to children, and families of children, facing long-term hospitalizations – making all those who benefit, one of Esther’s friends.
