I have been blown away by his continued joy in the midst of so much hardship. I'm so proud of both him and my mom, and the strength they both possess each day battling this terrible disease. I'm running this 15k in Georgia 4/30 in honor of my dad, and I hope to raise support to help fund research in finding a cure for ALS.
