Community remembers legacy of Pound Ridge resident and activist Dana Reeve
Residents in Westchester and Hudson Valley are remembering the legacy left behind by Pound Ridge resident Dana Reeve Wednesday.
Reeve died Monday after a battle with lung cancer at the age of 44. Neighbors remember her courage in caring for her husband, Christopher Reeve, for the 10 years after he became paralyzed in a riding accident. A spokesperson for the Christopher Reeve Foundation, which Dana founded, says her work to help paralysis victims will continue.
Before her death, Reeve made arrangements for her 13-year-old son to live with friends near their Pound Ridge home. Her impact on the community and beyond is said to be immeasurable.
