Sharon A. Neumann, SPMC AdvGRS

Sharon Neumann has been developing organizational programming and helping heal broken hearts for decades.  She is among the original 100 Advanced Grief Recovery Specialists in the world and a certified Senior Program Manager.  She maintains a private office in Traverse City, Michigan, from which she serves individual and organizational clients both in person and globally via virtual platforms.

Ms. Neumann’s professional career has been strongly influenced and inspired by her long-term close and caregiving relationships with her sister and brother-in-law Nancy (Whitmore) Sando and Andy Sando, both diagnosed with the tragically disabling rare disease fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP).  The story of Nancy and Andy’s meeting and their wedding was front page news in the New York Times holiday edition the year they married.  Near the time of that magical event expanding their special family, Sharon gifted her (pre-internet) independent research of forty-four FOP patients identified on several continents to Dr. Michael Zasloff and Dr. Fred Kaplan of the University of Pennsylvania, then co-organized the ground-breaking First International FOP Symposium to include not only scientific and medical professionals, but patients and families coping with the tragic consequences of this disease.  The first-of-its-kind symposium platform gave rise to a successful growth of the FOP community.  Soon thereafter, many other rare disease and advocacy organizations reached out to Sharon for international community development guidance.  Incredibly, years later, when Andy was dying from complications of FOP, Nancy and Andy made the decision to donate Andy’s live bone marrow at the time of his death to Dr. Kaplan’s research leading to the long-sought after discovery of the FOP gene and bringing the family’s joint advocacy efforts full circle.

The cumulative effect of Sharon’s advocacy, education and program development efforts have resulted in the successful growth of dozens of organizations; millions of dollars in direct benefit to individuals struggling with rare disease or catastrophic injury and the professional research community; numerous successful public education and awareness campaigns; and, perhaps most importantly, hope and healing in the hearts of countless fellow humans around the globe coping with loss due to death or changes in health or life circumstances as well as any of the more than 40 major losses that can be experienced. 

Sharon enjoys life in the garden with her husband Jay, two daughters and sons-in-law, three “bonus” sons, and sister Nancy who is a founding board member of the International FOP Association and devoted mentor to FOP patients and caregivers.  Sharon serves on the international advisory board of Tin Soldiers, Johannesburg, South Africa, as well as numerous other regional human service organization boards and committees.  She is co-executive producer of “A Perfect Storm”, an international documentary currently under production exploring the contributing factors to the COVID-19 pandemic and measures to prevent future pandemics of its kind.

Ms. Neumann is accepting referrals and new individual as well as organizational clients.  You are invited to contact her directly for more information.
