It’s that time of year again, October is quickly approaching & in honor of my mom Martin-Droz Heather who passed away January 9th, 2021 from this awful disease we will be participating in The Walk To Defeat ALS. And we would love for all friends, family & friends that became family to come and walk with us. The walk will take place on October 9th 2021 at Cedar Crest College in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Not only is this walk on the 9th but it also marks the ninth month anniversary that my mom took her last breath and received her wings and I don’t think these dates are a coincidence. Everyone who is interest in walking with us will have to register through the link below even children. We will also be making shirts, water bottles. Two years ago we were the biggest team and this year let’s make it happen for her again 💪🏼💜👼

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!
