EVENT DATE Sep 07, 2014

THE STORY:

At the age of 30, Ben was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease, or ALS. If you are not familiar with this disease, it is life changing. It robs the otherwise healthy person of all voluntary muscle movements over time. For Ben, it wasn’t much time at all. He lost the ability to talk, walk, eat and move most muscles within the first year of diagnosis. It was a staggering blow, to say the least to the family, wife Sarah, daughter Sophie (then just one year old) now 8, and son Benjamin now 5 years old. Those diagnosed with the disease typically die within 2-5 years, mainly because they can no longer use their muscles to breathe or cough to clear secretions. There is no cure, nor is there medication which does much more than extend a patient’s life 2-3 months. ALS has horrible emotional and financial effects on the family, and ours was no exception.

We are hoping that that this golf outing will help the Thimmes family financially by being able to get a new communication device to help Ben's voice be heard!  We thank you in advance for your support!!!
