Anna Elizabeth Moyer found a way to help and support children with MSUD and their families. At her death, she gifted her estate to the MSUD Family Support Group to "support research and to disseminate information concerning the disease."

Anna was born in 1917 and lived most of her life before knowledge of MSUD was common. Anna learned about MSUD from Joyce Brubacher, as Joyce's mother and Anna were friends. When Joyce and Wayne Brubacher's oldest son, Monte, died in 1974 as a result of complications resulting from MSUD, Anna was deeply touched.

Anna directed that the entirety of her estate go to help those with MSUD and to further MSUD research. Anna passed away in October 2011 at 94 years of age.  The MSUD Family Support Group is grateful to Anna Elizabeth Moyer for her generous donation.
