Over fifteen and a half years have passed since our cousin Jemma was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Jemma is now 45 years old and unable to eat, dress or move without the help of her husband, Jason. Throughout her courageous battle Jemma remains a giver and a fighter.
This September FOR THE LOVE OF JEMMA is gearing up for our team’s 16th annual Walk to Defeat ALS. We will also Walk in memory of our loving parents and grandparents Rita and Herb Chestler. Throughout their own heroic battle with cancer, they were truly dedicated to finding a cure for Jemma and all ALS patients. They were a constant presence at the annual Walk regardless of their declining health. They were a wonderful team and the strongest people we knew
