Our Inspiration

Lauren Rose grew up in Woodmere, New York and Cherry Hill, New Jersey with her parents, Susan and Stuart, and her younger sisters Jackie, Amy and Elizabeth. She was the wife of Dr. Todd Albert and the mother of Stuart, Elliot and Emily.

On February 18, 1999 Lauren was a passenger in a vehicle that tumbled down a mountainside in Morocco, killing her. She was only 40. She believed in helping others and was an activist for causes in which she believed and a volunteer to help others less fortunate than herself.

For her parents, sisters, friends and colleagues – and for her own family – Lauren was an inspiration. She had integrity, self-discipline and great strength of character; she always spoke up for what she felt was right. And she fought for her beliefs with determination and dignity.

These are the qualities that inspire the Lauren Rose Albert Foundation. As Lauren’s mother, creating the Foundation has been a difficult, but rewarding process for me. We want to do so much in Lauren’s name, and we want to honor her memory with a lasting legacy of contribution and loving care for others.

Lauren was the oldest of our four wonderful daughters. She was truly, a ray of sunshine. Full of laughter, love and light, Lauren’s smile would warm and comfort all who were touched by her radiance, her gentleness and her compassion. Through the work of the Foundation we hope to spread sunshine – Lauren’s Light – and in some small way, to help others live better lives.

Lauren believed in helping others. She was an activist for causes in which she believed and a volunteer to help others less fortunate than herself. Through the goals set by the Foundation, Lauren’s Legacy will continue to pursue a safer, gentler world and will continue to offer humanitarian and financial assistance to those in need.

We hope you will support Lauren’s Legacy and participate in the Foundation’s Mission to help others.
