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.
