The Shane Cattanach Memorial Foundation began out of necessity…  a parent’s need to make sense out of the senseless.

We lost our oldest son, Shane Cattanach, on November 20, 2009, due to complications from asthma, a disease he had endured all his 27 years.  Shane never let his asthma distract him from achieving his goals.  He lived life to its fullest:  earning 2 black belts by the time he was 14, skateboarding, hunting, fishing, mobbing his Chevy pickup, busing tables, bungee jumping, bartending, brewing beer, graduating with a BA in Finance, skydiving, surfing, running a ½ marathon, traveling, living in Ireland for a year, boxing, MMA training, visiting with friends and family, and living large! 

Our motto is the bio that Shane wrote about himself for his myspace.com page.  It says it all.  Our goal is to help other young adults who have life threatening illnesses to have a “Get it in while you can” moment.
