THE STORY:

I’m raising money and awareness for ALS, a devastating neurological disease that affects someone I love. ALS weakens and paralyzes voluntary muscles, like those in the arms, hands, feet, legs, throat, and lungs. The average patient lives only 2-5 years from diagnosis, but with more attention and funding, we CAN find treatments and an eventual cure for this disease. People like my friend Sarah are counting on it. Sarah was diagnosed with ALS when she was 33 years old. Her daughter was only two. Sarah went from being an active and busy mom to one who is now in a wheelchair, requiring daily help with basic needs. But she hasn’t given up. I’m doing my part to make ALS history. On August 5th, I’ll be giving up the use of my arms and hands. I will be having my husband and children feed me for the day. I don’t have ALS, and I know that this experience will show me just a fraction of what people who do have it deal with all day, every day. But I want to do this to help people understand some of what ALS takes away. For Sarah, and for all the people living with ALS, I’m giving my arms and hands. What would you give to end this disease? Please help me by donating to ALS TDI and advancing ALS research
