Please Support Me...
Greetings friends & family
I'm participating in this year's ALS SuperHero Dash, in honor of my mom, Kathy. Mom passed from ALS in March 2019, after kicking its ass for almost two years. I'm sure near the end, she'd have quipped "You should see the other guy" .. had not ALS long stripped her of her ability to speak. Still, her humor, strength, grace, and love enriched us to her last days.
The ALS Association provided mom and dad with essential services & support throughout her battle, with vital resources both tangeable & otherwise. They made so many amazing connections with the medical, counseling, administrative, and peer connection relations made through the Association.
Please consider a financial gift to this incredible organization, so they might provide these continued essential services to others living with ALS.
Why Your Help Matters...
Also referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly takes away the body's ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. There is currently no cure for the disease with life expectancy averaging 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Due to the rapid progression of ALS, the needs of someone living with the disease evolve rapidly over a short period of time. Often times insurance does not cover durable medical equipment, so The ALS Association utilizes a loan pool that allows people to access equipment at no charge. Caregivers often need a break, so The ALS Association pays for skilled home care workers to give those caregivers time. The ALS Association also provides augmentative communication devices that are critical when someone's ability to speak has been compromised.
All of these supports help individuals and families impacted by ALS live the fullest life possible, which is why I'm asking you to support my fundraising efforts. Help make a difference and donate today by clicking on the Donate key. Your gift will make you a hero in the lives of others.
