Ed Muse was diagnosed with ALS about 5 years ago. Ed has inspired so many of his friends with his will and determination while dealing with this terrible disease. From the inspiration that Ed has given many of us we want to ensure that future generations don't have to suffer in the same manner. This fundraiser is to help the ALS society in funding research and making others aware of this dreadful disease. If we can get 100 people to give 100 dollars each we can reach our goal of 10000 dollars and do our part in helping Ed and others like him. ALS is a disease that effectively destroys the body until complete organ failure and eventual death. While the degeneration occurs the mind is still fully functioning and still feels sensations and pain.
All money donated goes directly to the ALS society
