The Cindy Project

Cynthia Mary Marcel “Cindy” was born on March 19th, 1966 at Charity Hospital in New Orleans to a criminally insane mother.  Cindy died at eighteen years of age of encephalitis while on a senior trip to Fort Walton Beach Florida on July 24th, 1984. 

Cindy’s step-aunt, Mrs. Jeanette Naquin, committed a substantial sum of money to improve the situation of the prisoners incarcerated in the prison in Jeremie, Haiti in her memory. 

Hopefully, Cindy’s tragic life will bring help and consolation to many through her aunt’s benevolence and determination.
