Help me raise money to find a cure for ALS!
Welcome to the fundraising page of Nadia Long- in Memory of Nan Douridas
|Date:||Sunday, September 18, 2022|
Please consider sponsoring me. I am raising funds in memory of my mom Nan Douridas who died in 2006 after fighting a courageous 3 year battle with ALS. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease. I encourage you to donate whatever you can, because even a small donation will go a long way in raising awareness and funding research to find a cure for this devastating disease!
Why I Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease though support is bringing researchers closer to an answer. In the mean time it costs an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.
Thank you for your support.
Hopefully one day we will no longer have to lose another loved one to ALS.
