The Dan Cavanagh Memorial Fund is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that was started by the family of the late Dan Cavanagh. Dan was a beloved citizen of Chatsworth, IL from the time he was born. He was a lifetime member of Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church and was also a member of the Knights of Columbus, the Sons of the American Legion, and Pheasants Forever - Livingston County.

Dan passed away from a rare disease, Multiple System Atrophy, on October 11th, 2015, at the age of 65. Multiple System Atrophy, or MSA, is a terminal neurodegenerative disease that affects both men and women and strikes them in the prime of their life. It slowly and progressively takes away their abilities to walk, talk, swallow, and breathe. MSA is considered a type of parkinsonism but with more widespread effects on the brain and body.

All proceeds from The 3rd Annual Danny Cavanagh Memorial on July 7th, 2018, will benefit The Multiple System Atrophy Coalition.

Your participation and donations for the Danny Cavanagh Memorial are greatly appreciated!
