Philanthropy in Action

Madeleine's Miracle

by NYP Development Communications

For Enid and Gary Press, an unexpected evaluation of their daughter Madeleine would soon become a years-long relationship between their family and NewYork-Presbyterian's Center for Autism and the Developing Brain. Enrolled in the Center's program for toddlers, Madeleine was given the support she needed to flourish and continues to thrive today. Philanthropy helps make stories like these possible for so many families, empowering our centers to provide world-class specialized care to those who need it.
