My dear sister Lauren passed away February 2018
from familial ALS. She lived with ALS with grace, positivity and a beautiful
smile. She was an inspiration in dealing with adversity. Lauren and I share the
same gene that caused our ALS. I soldier on and adjust to limitations with the
aid of my problem-solving husband, Mike, who is forever trying to make my life
easier. Donations fuel research for a cure. Please join me in the
fight to eradicate ALS. Thanks for your love and support.
Why We Need Your Help
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
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!
