I was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) six years ago. It’s been a hard road. It started as a little bit of weakness in my foot and within three and a half years I was paralyzed and on a ventilator. I need 24/7 care but private insurance and Medicare don’t cover that. But there are patients in worse situations than me. Thankfully, we have the ALS Association to fill some of that support gap.
We’re hosting a fundraiser on Thursday, September 21, 2017 from 7-9 pm at The Well, 7421 Broadway, Kansas City, MO 64114. Donations will be taken at the door and the event will include beer, appetizers and live music. Half the proceeds will go to the ALS Association and half will go towards my medical costs.
I hope you can make it! All are welcome!
If you can’t make the fundraiser but are interested in donating, please consider contributing to my ALSA walk team by clicking here. As you can see, I have some work to do!
Thank you for supporting the fight against ALS!
