Her generous financial gifts have sustained FACTS every step of the way, and her kind support has been an uplifting source of encouragement for the FACTS team. Simply stated, FACTS would not be where it is without the generosity of Dr. Therese M. Duane, the sister of our executive director and cofounder, Dr. Marguerite Duane.
