Help me raise money to find a cure for ALS!

Dear family and friends,
As many of you know, my best friend (and better half) of 30 years Brooke Eby was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) at the age of 33. ALS is a progressive and fatal neuromuscular disease, and no cure has been identified.
Since Brooke's diagnosis she has quickly become a serious advocate/fundraiser to seek out a cure for a disease that many of us pay little attention to/know very little about. In true Brooke Eby form, she has taken her terminal diagnosis and decided to face it with an unparalleled level of courage, humor, wit and grace (if you don’t already, follow @limpbroozkit to see what I mean).
Her sparkly & charming self (Hoda & Savannah’s words) was even on the Today Show sharing her story with the world and raising awareness on a National platform. If you haven’t already watched, take a look:
Although Brooke has managed to defy natural human instincts and remain her positive & hilarious self, she is battling a disease that has no known treatment or cure. 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 a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis. ALS can strike anyone, and presently there is no known cause or cure.
Brooke has been an inspiration and hero to myself and countless others and I’m incredibly honored and proud to call her my best friend. Brooke truly believes that this is her life’s purpose, and through her efforts, I know we are getting closer to finding a much needed cure.
To that end, I’m joining Brooke and our friends again in this year’s Walk to Defeat ALS. All money that we fundraise will go directly to research for ALS, a disease that impacts one in every 300 people.
I’d be incredibly grateful if you’d consider donating to our walk! No amount is too small.
Thank you so much for your contribution and support.
