Caroline & Trey Winslett
Cofounders
Caroline and Trey Winslett lost their first born child to Gaucher’s Disease on October 16, 2020. Ward’s legacy, forever sweet if far too brief, endures in the foundation his family has formed. Its name – WARD’S Foundation. Working to Advance Rare Disease Support – speaks of heartbreak. Its mission, inspires hope.
