That is Lynn on the left in this picture. She was always laughing or talking. Lynn was not only my sister she was my best friend. Her life was taken away too soon. When Lynn passed she took a piece of me with her and I will never get it back. She is missing out on so much and it breaks my heart. I want to share stories with her again and giggle and laugh like we used to. I miss her beyond words.
I actually dread signing up for this walk every year but it is the one thing I can do to try and help find a cure for this horrible disease. As I sit here crying and thinking about Lynn I know she would be proud of all of us for continuing to honor her memory and participate in this fundraiser. And so I do it for you sis because you deserve it and so much more. We all do it in hopes that other future families will not have to lose their best friend.
We love you and we miss you and we will never ever forget 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.
Why We Need Your Help
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.
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.
ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, though support is bringing researchers closer to an answer. In the meantime it costs an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need. Join the movement to bring help and hope today!
