About 2 years ago, Diane participated in the Walk to Defeat ALS. Although she was weak and exhausted from living with this dreaded disease herself, she continued to show her determination to fight. Six months later, on March 21st 2019, she sadly lost her battle to ALS. This disease took away her ability to talk, swallow, walk, and live. As a family, we have vowed to fight for a cure for this disease for as long as we possibly can. In honor of Diane and all the others affected by ALS, please consider donating and helping us reach our goal. Let's do it for Diane!
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!
