Memory of Pound Ridge man killed on 9/11 lives on in parent?s effort to help others
A Pound Ridge couple is helping to keep the legacy of their son alive through a foundation in his name that helps strife-torn countries.
Dr. Stephen Alderman and his wife, Elizabeth, started the Peter C. Alderman foundation in 2002 in memory of their youngest son who died on 9/11. The foundation was set up to help people around the world, who are suffering from long-term effects of mass violence and terrorism.
In 2003 and 2004, the foundation sponsored what is being called, "master classes" for health care professionals from strife torn countries. They are preparing to sponsor a third class in Italy.
The couple also opened a health care clinic in Cambodia.
