Daughter's Memory Drives Parents to Raise Funding, Awareness for Deadly Lung Disease

2nd Annual Lisa Sandler Spaeth Memorial Golf Tournament to be held at Woodmont Country Club on September 14th

ROCKVILLE, Md., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Two years ago, Dr. Jerome and Froma Sandler lost their daughter to the untreatable lung disease they now work to cure.

Because awareness of PF is unacceptably low, funding for research in the area is even lower.

The inaugural golf tournament in 2008 raised $275,000.

Dr. and Mrs. Sandler are veterans of the CPF's annual National Pulmonary Fibrosis Awareness Week on Capitol Hill, where they have met with many Members of Congress regarding the recently re-introduced Pulmonary Fibrosis Research Enhancement Act (H.R. 1079) and encouraged their supp
