Will You Help Me Celebrate 10 Years of LIVING with ALS?

Hello everybody!

This is my annual plea for donations to the ALS Association, but this year is a little different. I’m commemorating ten years of living with ALS by setting some lofty fundraising goals.

My original goal was $10k, but I exceeded that a while ago. And then I raised twice that original goal – I’m currently at $20,700. Can you believe it? So many friends, family, and even some complete strangers generously contributed to ALSA.

I’m humbled, but I’m not done yet because ALS patients and their family members really need our help. ALS is a 100% terminal disease with no cure and really no effective treatment. Only around 5,000 people in the US are diagnosed with ALS each year, so it doesn’t receive much attention from drugmakers.

Additionally, caring for ALS patients is really expensive for families.

The ALS Association funds much needed drug research, provides services to ALS patients, and advocates for us in Washington.
