Please show your support and donate to the MPS Foundation to increase public awareness of Pulmonary Fibrosis and to help find a cure.

On Saturday September 10, 2011, I am doing a 3K walk in the Long Grove Heritage Race and am asking for your support in helping to raise funds for the Michael P Savoca Foundation.

Michael P. Savoca (Mike) was a very dear friend and neighbor. He was a wonderful father, husband, friend, as well as a very hard working, generous and thoughtful man. My family and the Savoca family have been very close for many years. Mike passed away in September 2009 from pulmonary fibrosis, after being diagnosed only 6 months earlier with this disease, a disease so many of us knew so little about. This was devastating to all of us. Mike’s six children wanted to keep his spirit and generosity alive by creating the MPS Foundation to increase public awareness of pulmonary fibrosis and to help support organizations dedicated to finding a cure for it.

Already the MPS Foundation has contributed to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation and the University of Chicago Interstititial Lung Disease Program. For more information please visit:

Thank you for opening your hearts and your wallets for a great cause.
