Many of you know my story, but for those of you who don’t. My brother was diagnosed with ALS this past May, two years after our father passed away from the same disease. They both had/have the familial version of Lou Gehrig’s disease and my brother is the estimated tenth person in our family to be diagnosed. Currently there is no cure for ALS and we want to do anything and everything to end that. If you’re in California, please consider joining my team to walk at Exposition Park in LA on November 6 or joining me virtually from anywhere ❤
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.
That’s why I’m walking. To change the statistics. To bring help and hope to those living with the disease. To ensure that no one ever hears the words: “You Have ALS” again.
The past two years have brought incredible advancements in ALS research, expanded access to care for people living with ALS, and enabled legislation that impacts the quality of life of people with ALS and their families.
But, we can’t stop now. The key to a cure begins with you.
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.
