ARDS Foundation

Tax deductible
Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a life

threatening condition that occurs when fluid suddenly fills

the air sacs in your lungs causing total lung failure. Over

200,000 Americans are diagnosed each year and once it

strikes it’s nearly impossible to stop. Nearly half will die.

Until recently if you asked “When will there be more

hope?”, the answer has been “Don’t hold your breath.”

But finally there is news worth holding your breath for as

research is unraveling the mysteries of ARDS and promising

new treatments and drugs are on the way.

HOLD YOUR BREATH FOR ARDS. Here’s your chance

to help ARDS Foundation get the word out about this

deadly condition. Take a selfie or video and caption it

with the number of seconds you held your breath, and

you’ll be helping to raise much needed awareness.


upload your photo or video to our website ARDSFoundation.

org where we’ll post it for the world to watch in

amazement while they learn a little bit about ARDS and

ARDS Foundation.

PLEASE DONATE. And please consider making a tax deductible

donation to ARDS Foundation by pledging any

amount for every second. Better yet, get a sponsor to

do the same. The money you raise will help us continue

our important work, and allow us to create new initiatives

like our “Ask the Doctors” program, to be housed on our

website, where ARDS specialists from around the world

will answer questions submitted by the public.
