Children Enjoy Asthma Camp
CAMP ASTHMACADABRA, sponsored by the Max and Lorraine Foundation, welcomed 31 children with asthma this year to enjoy the camping experience.

Dear Editor:

The Max and Lorraine Foundation and the American Lung Association would like to express their deepest gratitude to the directors, nurses, respiratory therapists and all the volunteers who gave their time to make it possible for 31 children with asthma to enjoy the camping experience for the 19th year in a row.

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 Dr. Jeffrey Zero, Chris and Elaine Tino, Tony Delonti of the American Lung Association and Lisa Pupa for their hours of dedication to coordinate the camp schedule, along with Mary Delpiaz for providing additional education for the children.

Great appreciation goes out to Mark McElhinney 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. We would also like to welcome and thank Devon Polhemus, Camp and Conference Director, for her assistance.

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 MacDonald which has supported the Max and Lorraine Foundation for 19 years.
