Radio Segment Explores FTD’s Effect on One Father-Daughter Relationship

Posted on Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

FTD took the ability to speak clearly from Arpiar Saunders, better known as Arpy. Leading up to his death in late 2014, Arpy was left with the ability to say just a handful of phrases, which he repeated endlessly in phone calls and voicemails to his daughter, Alice. In a recent radio segment, released as part of WBUR Boston’s Kind World series, Alice talked about how meaningful those handful of phrases were, and the special gift that lets them live on. Read and listen to Alice’s story at the WBUR website.
