Barbara Fremont was a close friend of Judy Gelfand. “I met Judy in the late 1970s. She always had a smile on her face. She was very special and caring,” Barbara says. Barbara and her late husband, Robert, lived in Rancho Mirage and actively supported many charities, including The Judy Fund. “For my mother, the decision to support The Judy Fund was easy,” says Lora Fremont, Barbara and Robert’s daughter. “She adored Judy.”

The Fremont family has been personally touched by dementia. “My father had dementia when he passed away in 2012,” Lora says. “I know how heartbreaking it is to watch the light dim on the mind and the vibrancy of someone you love. We all appreciate the amazing work The Judy Fund does to fight Alzheimer’s.” Lora and her two sisters were influenced by their parents’ philanthropy. “My parents always held the belief that it is important to give back to the community, and they felt very fortunate that they were in a position to do so,” says Lora. “Following my mother’s ongoing example, my sisters and I all donate to causes close to our hearts. My mother has definitely inspired her daughters.”
