2020 was the year the world stopped. The year that challenged us all and tested each of us more than we thought was possible. 2021 was supposed to be a year of hope, a year of positive change, a year of healing. But for our family, 2021 had different plans for us. In March, Mom was diagnosed with ALS. It has been tough, but faith is getting us through and having such a tight knit family and such a strong family is such a blessing. We instantly started doing research and have been finding ways to help Mom fight this horrible disease. If you know Mom, you know how tough it has been to ask for help or to have others help her do daily tasks, but if you know Mom you also know she is one of the strongest, selfless woman that anyone knows. And we know she will fight this. And she will have an ARMY behind her helping her every step of the way (even if she doesn’t want the help) We are going to be joining the Walk to Defeat ALS on September 11th in Rehobeth Beach, DE and we would love for you to join us in person, virtually, or through your prayers!
Thank you for helping us reach our fundraising goal! Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by ALS. Our team is committed to raising money to support people in our community with ALS and spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure. Please consider joining our team in the Walk to Defeat ALS® or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
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.
That’s why we’re participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS. To bring hope. To raise awareness. To provide resources and services to families free of charge. To help unlock the mystery of ALS and find the key to treatments a cure. Will you join us?
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!
