DAVID CRY was the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of The Adrenoleukodystrophy Foundation, an organization founded in 2000 to serve the needs of families with the fatal pediatric condition, ALD.

David lived his passions daily, having assisted mothers and fathers affected by this terrible condition in over 150 countries. David has established relationships with researchers at Johns Hopkins, Duke, Minnesota, Harvard, M.I.T., and many other institutions of higher learning.

“Care today for a cure tomorrow” has been The ALD Foundation’s motto since day one, and David worked tirelessly every day to make this change a reality. He had lived in Slidell, Louisiana with his wife Jaymee and son Brennan. He was the author of A Short Walk Home.
