In loving memory of the man, the myth, the legend, Joe Falcone. We would like to raise funds for Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS).
The ARDS Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting patients and families faced with the horrific diagnosis of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). As per the ARDS Foundation : 200,000 Americans each year are diagnosed with ARDS, anywhere from 35% to almost 50% of those diagnosed do not survive. They are dedicated to increasing awareness about this little known syndrome, too many people are unaware of this deadly syndrome that strikes without warning, suddenly and quickly. Increasing public awareness is instrumental in raising funds for ARDS foundation so that they can continue to support this community vigorously. ARDS Foundation also partners with medical professions to facilitate research projects.
We will be hosting a Sandlot game in Joe's honor on October 12th 2019, just like old times. Please consider donating in memory of a special soul, a good man, and a great friend. Your funds will be used to help educate about ARDS, advocate for health care changes, and provide support for survivors of ARDS and their families – thank you for your generous support!!
