Board Member - Donna Leitao
Position: Member at Large
Why do you volunteer for APDA Massachusetts?
My brother made me! Actually, he was diagnosed when he was 40 and we became involved in the APDA Walkathon, where we first heard about the Chapter. We went to a meeting, and met people who were very welcoming. They said that we should volunteer so we did!
When did you first join the Board, and what is your role on it?
I joined a few years ago, the same time as my brother. I am a Member-at-Large.
I am an open book, so there isn’t much people don’t know about me! My philosophy is “Don’t hold anything back, don’t live with regrets”.
What do you want to see the APDA MA Chapter accomplish over the next year?
I would love to see the Chapter grow and get more active volunteers. The more people we have, the more the Chapter grows!
