I lost my two sisters, Patti and Stacy to ALS. No family should ever be witness to this disease. When you know a disease is 100% terminal, and they've since lost their battle, it gets harder and harder wanting or trying to fundraise or put a spotlight on this horrific disease. I am walking virtually this Saturday in their memory. Our family goal is $1500. Will you consider making the ALS Association part of your philanthropic generosity this year?
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.
