Children Enjoy Asthma Camp
ASTHMA CAMP sponsored by the Max and Lorraine Foundation made the camping experience possible for 31 children with asthma.

Dear Editor:

The Max and Lorraine Foundation and the American Lung Association would like to express their deepest gratitude to the doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists and the all the volunteers who gave their time to make it possible for 31 children with asthma to enjoy the camping experience for the 18th year.

The Max and Lorraine Foundation was founded in memory of Lorraine Button Tracy and her son Max who passed away at age 40 and 10, respectively, due to complications arising from an asthma attack.

A special thank you to our medical director Dr. Jeffrey Zero, Chris and Elaine Tino, Tony Delonti of The American Lung Association, Lisa Pupa and Marie Karpriski for their hours of dedication to coordinate the camp schedule along with Mary Delpiaz and Marnetta Bradford for providing additional asthma education for the children.

Great appreciation goes out to Mack McElhinney, camp director, and the YMCA staff for their patience and understanding shown to each child. We are fortunate to have Camp Kresge in our locality for all to enjoy.

This year we were especially

fortunate to have enough former campers return as counselors for all the cabins. Their help was indeed appreciated.

A debt of gratitude is extended to the Marquis George MacDonald Foundation through Helen and Kevin McDonald that has supported the Max and Lorraine Foundation for 18 years.
