Randy is a loving husband, goofy but supporting father, welcoming father-in-law, caring brother, hard worker and he kinda likes the 49ers (all Bay Area teams)! He was officially diagnosed in December 2021, after he was told that having a knee replacement surgery would help him. The surgery did not heal or progress on schedule, so it was not until then that they began to run more thorough tests. Still even after his diagnosis, my dad has remained extremely positive and incredibly strong for his family. Now after many years of my dad being strong for us, it’s time for us to be strong for him and be apart of the 2022 ALS walk.
Randy's diagnosis has offered us a quick course in education on ALS. It's unfortunate that in this day and age, it continues to be a terminal illness. More research needs to happen! Randy has chosen not to be a part of any trials. We would like to make a change and pray the future ALS patients have a better outcome then is currently offered.
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.
The past 7 months have been live changing. The love and support the family has received from family and dear friends has been overwhelming. We are blessed to have amazing people gather around us. I hope no one has to go through what we are experiencing, however LOVE is powerful. We feel it and appreciate it.
Randy has been married to Milica for over 40 years. They have had beautiful lives together. He is an amazing man and partner. Milica can't imagine her life without him. She is staying as strong as possible and is always by his side and will remain by his side as their vows promised. Together Randy and Milica have three daughters, Ana, Cristina and Heather, and a grandson, Clayton. He means so much to his whole family and that is why we are staying strong for him and helping to fundraise for the cure! Thank you for your support!
