Nathaniel Adamczyk Foundation
715 Greythorne Road
Wynnewood, PA 19096
The Nathaniel Adamczyk Foundation (NAF) is a voluntary organization whose mission is to save the lives of children who develop sudden respiratory failure as a result of common, everyday respiratory illnesses. Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a type of severe, acute lung dysfunction affecting all or most of both lungs that occurs as a result of illness or injury. Pediatric Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (pARDS) strikes an estimated 10,000 children each year. Currently, the illness can only be treated. NAF aims to be able to identify children at risk and prevent the illness from ever taking hold. They hope to put risk-identifying and diagnostic tools into the hands of doctors and parents to halt this process that too frequently results in death.
