About Play for FA

In 2012, Cynthia and Gerard Vandermeys joined the Play for FA team to help find a cure for their two, children Alex and Jacqueline. Since it’s inception, Play for FA has have raised over $1,500,000 to combat this dreadful disease. The McQueens, the Vandermeys and all the families around the world afflicted with FA are deeply grateful for everyone’s support.
