Edward (Ed) Fischler is the father of David Fischler, who has classic MSUD. Ed is married to Lynn Fischler and together they have three children - David (age 27), his twin brother Michael, and a daughter, Jennifer, age 29.

Ed is a native of Virginia. After serving in the Army in the early 1970’s and later graduating from the College of William and Mary in Virginia, he moved to Atlanta, Georgia. There he met and married his wife, Lynn. Their children were all born and raised in the Atlanta area. In 2014, after concluding his 37-year career with Southern Company, he and Lynn moved to Windermere, Florida, where they presently reside. Ed plays golf and volunteers for roles in local charity golf tournaments and with Lynn, they both enjoy traveling. Ed, Lynn, and David attended their fi rst MSUD Family Support Group symposium in Philadelphia in 2014. At that conference, David spoke about managing MSUD while in school and college, his experiences playing on his soccer team with his brother and high school teammates, and marching in his high school band and later with the Georgia Tech marching band.

Like others aff ected by MSUD, David, Lynn and Ed anxiously await a cure. In the meantime, the MSUD family support group is an important - if not the most important source of information (and comfort) about how to manage illnesses, diets, as well as tips, suggestions, and advice from other parents.

Herb Foster is the father of Scott C. Foster (deceased) and Katelyn DeGaetano, both with classic MSUD. “I have been given the honor and privilege to be made a member of the MSUD family support group Board of Directors. I hope to be active with the research committee and help all members of the support group with any fundraising ideas they would be interested in undertaking on behalf of our new research fund.”

Jennifer Saunders is a 48 year with classic MSUD. She lives in Phoenix, Arizona. She has attended most of the MSUD Family Support Group symposia.
