Welcome to the Michelle LaMere Memorial Fund.
Michelle LaMere of Tupper Lake NY retired in June 2016 after 30 years as a teacher and began her next chapter as a Zumba instructor as a means of empowering women. Michelle’s new chapter was cut short on Dec 27, 2016 when she was diagnoses with ALS.
Supported by her family and friends, Michelle fought with all her might to beat the unbeatable - even continuing as instructor of her devoted Zumba family. After just six months, Michelle lost her battle with ALS, passing peacefully at home on June 8, 2017. Her journey can be read in her blog: ajourneytohope.weebly.com.
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.
