Mary Schmidt Read is Dancing with The Stars
Mary Schmidt will be participating in the 2016 Gloucester County Dancing with the Stars! Mary will be supporting The Adam Taliaferro Foundation and Mary needs your help to make her dancing a success.
Mary grew up in Gloucester County and now lives in Camden County NJ. She met Adam Taliaferro and his family when he was a patient at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, after his spinal cord injury 16 years ago, where she serves as the Director of the Spinal Cord Injury Program. Mary was asked to join the Board of Directors of the Adam Taliaferro Foundation as a clinical and medical advocate on the Board, and has been active with the organization since. She enjoys supporting their Mission, to assist anyone who incurs a catastrophic spinal or brain injury and has been actively involved in supporting the Awards Program, the Medical Symposiums and the emotional support for patients and families served. The Adam Taliaferro Foundation has been able to support individuals with purchasing equipment not covered by insurance that are considered essential to their care and function. They also have helped with some renovations, transportation, attendant care, and other items that contribute to the individual and family’s wellbeing and continued to live in the community. Mary states it has been a privilege to work with a group of volunteers whose sole mission is to make the lives of others better!
