The D'Amico's will be participating in the 2010 Heritage Race on Saturday, September 11. Please consider sponsoring me to benefit the Michael P. Savoca Memorial Foundation in honor Heather's dad who passed away from this disease.

My father, Mike Savoca, passed away on September 29, 2009 from pulmonary fibrosis. He was only 59 years old.  More suprisingly, he was initially diagnosed with this horrific disease in March 2009.  My family and I were devastated to see this horrific disease, which we had never heard about, take away our father so quickly.  My dad was a man full of life, love, humor and up until his diagnosis, health.

Needless to say, this loss has been devastating.  My siblings and I, with the help of my mom and 4 of my dad's closest friends, have started the Michael P. Savoca Memorial Foundation. It is our sincere hope to raise money and awareness on behalf of pulmonary fibrosis.

The Michael P. Savoca Memorial Foundation has been given an incredible opportunity to participate in the Long Grove Rotary Race.   Chris, Amanda, Bella and I will be participating in honor of my dad.  

Please consider sponsoring the D'Amico family and join us in our fight against pulmonary fibrosis and in our efforts to keep my dad's spirit alive. 

Many thanks,

Heather
