You all know Ben Flowe is my brother in law who I along with my son Patrick introduced to my wonderful sister Peg 20 years ago and to whom he has been married for the last 18 years.....Ben has been diagnosed with ALS for the last 9 years and we promised Ben and Peg that they would not be in this FIGHT alone. Ben is an inspiration to us all and you never hear him complain even though this nasty disease has taken so much from him and from Peg. Please help us help them and the over 30,000 other Americans struggling to survive with ALS.
The past two years have brought incredible advancements in ALS research, expanded access to care for ALS patients and enabled legislation that impacts the quality of life of patients and their families. WE CAN'T STOP NOW!
Please consider walking with me or sponsoring me. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease.
Why We 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 $250,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.
