Nicknamed, "The Iron Man", Mike LaForgia; not only battled and survived

meningitis within six months; he then went on to run (with prosthetic) to

raise awareness. It is often, common place to celebrate the survivor (as

well as it should be), but forget the ones who made it possible.

Organizations, such as yourself, who have conducted extensive research and

established events to raise awareness, are the catalyst for survivors such

as, Mike LaForgia. (a non-profit, website dedicated to the

preventions and treatments for disease), would like to join your fight

against Meningitis. Using our disease profiles, we have worked with

several elite organizations to fight the cure for disease. If you could,

please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would

be much appreciated. Together, let's give the meningitis world many more

iron men and women.
If you need more information please email me back with subject line as
