Monessa Tinsley-Crabb was a Post-Gazette reporter from June 2000 until Dec. 31, 2009. Among her last pieces for the Post-Gazette was a series of 8 articles detailing life with ALS, the effects of ALS, her devout Christian faith despite the disease's ravages and how her family and friends cared for her.  She was also an impactful advocate for our Chapter as we traveled to both the State Capital and Washington, DC which constituted our first check from the state to support care services.
