We need to let people with ALS know they are not alone. ALS affects more than nerve cells and muscles, it affects families, friends, co-workers, and communities.
With no known cause or cure, ALS challenges the human spirit and tests the courage of everyone touched by this devastating disease.
However, we can work together to create a Community of Hope that restores dreams and builds courage. Our community gives strength and hope to our loved ones, neighbors, and friends facing the fear and uncertainty of ALS.
We created this page in memory of my great-uncle Dave Carmichael who passed away late last year after a brave battle against ALS. Our family has seen the devastation this disease causes, not just to the person diagnosed, but also to all of their loved ones that watch them suffer, unable to do anything to help.
We hope to help other families dealing with this terrible disease through the ALS association's local chapter, which helps families in need, and through ALS research. Your gifts will make this possible. Please click the donation button to the right and give generously.
Thank you for helping us build a Community of Hope!
