Pam (aka Mom, Mimi, Dear) was officially diagnosed with ALS on March 16, 2021, just days before her 68th birthday. This disease is progressive and unforgiving. While this terrible disease has already taken so much from her, what it can't take is her spirit, faith, and love for her family. She enjoys visits from her two daughters, eight grandchildren, and many friends and family. She is being cared for by the love of her life and husband of 44 years. We know that our time may be short but the legacy and impact that Pam/Mom/Mimi has made on so many lives will go on forever. Help us find a cure for ALS and help us reach our fundraising goal! Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by ALS.

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. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need. Join the movement to provide help and hope today!
