Alienate ALS

Thank you for supporting my ALS United Walk fundraiser!  I chose "Alien Ate ALS" as our theme (of course, I have to make it punny - see left pix).

The ALS United Walk raises funds for:
  • Local patient care programs
  • Spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure

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, and presently there is no known cause or cure.
Why walk? 
  • To change the statistics. 
  • To bring help and hope to those living with the disease. 
  • To ensure that no one else ever hears the words: "You have ALS" again. 
The past two years have brought incredible advancements in ALS research, expanded access to care for people living with ALS, and enabled legislation that impacts the quality of life of people with ALS and their families. 
But we can't stop now. The key to a cure continues with you. 
Please consider walking with me or sponsoring me. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease. 

I was diagnosed with ALS in May, 2023.
