A friend in his early 50's has been diagnosed with ALS.He has a wife and kids that love him dearly. ALS " Lou Gerhigs" Disease causes the nerves to misfire and deteriorate. There is no known reason for its cause and there is no cure. Once diagnosed the average life span is about 4 yrs. Compassionate Care has come in like an Angel to help . They go around visiting people with this diagnosis giving emotional support and finding medical equipment that the patient will need. This wonderful organization needs our volunteer financial assistance.
