A few years ago William's aunt, Ann M. Wiener, passed away leaving a legacy that impacted charitable organizations she was involved with over the years. "My aunt was active in many organizations, even up to the point of when she died at the age of 101," commented William. "She was a generous woman who made provisions in her estate for a number of organizations, including the Children's Organ Transplant Association, that she felt were making a difference in the lives of the people they served."
Mrs. Wiener was born in New York City, and was a world traveler who made her home in the New York and New Jersey area for most of her life. Even though she had no children of her own, she cared for others as if they were her own.
"My heart soars and I am frequently amazed by the generous acts of caring individuals like Mrs. Wiener," commented COTA president Rick Lofgren. "Even though she did not know any of our patients personally, she felt compelled to help where she could."
"Since 1986 our patients have been the beneficiaries of the kindness of many, like Mrs. Wiener, who made a decision to get involved in the life of others," concluded Lofgren.
