Help me raise money to find a cure for ALS!
For Grandma Milly
|Event:||Greater Los Angeles Walk|
|Date:||November 6, 2022|
Fifteen years ago my family lost our beloved Grandma Milly to ALS (Lou Gherig's Disease). For those of you who are unfamiliar with ALS, it is a horrific disease affecting the motor neurons, that rapidly progresses, robbing its victims of the ability to walk, talk, eat, smile, laugh, and eventually the ability to breathe. It is 100% fatal. There is no cure for ALS, and even the available treatments cannot greatly improve those living with the disease.
Watching my Grandma slowly lose her battle to ALS was one of the hardest challenges my family has had to endure.
My family is committed to doing everything we can to find a cure for this horrific disease. Unfortunately there is not nearly enough awareness for ALS. Every person that visits my page is another person who has taken the time to become familiar with the disease, and my hope is that one by one, we will spread the word, and create a world without ALS.
Please take a moment to look around, explore, and join us in the fight against ALS. Whether you make a donation, join our Walk team, or start your own personal fundraising page, you are becoming part of a wonderful cause and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
My Grandma Milly touched the lives of everyone she knew, and we will continue to fight in her memory.
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
