During Conference, the LDSF presented our "Heart of Gold" award to Joey + Rory who, while facing an almost unimaginable personal tragedy worked to spread awareness of Loeys-Dietz syndrome and the foundation to a national stage on a scale that is staggering. We are humbled and grateful for their Hearts of Gold in furthering the mission of the LDSF. Congratulations and thank you to Joey + Rory!
