Even if you don't have the guts to jump you can still come out & support t he ones that are jumping!! Please make sure & get all donation checks made out to ALS TDI. ALS TDI is the world's leader in research aimed at the discovery and development of effective treatments and ultimately a cure for Lou Gehrig's disease. We will have various items for sale, raffle items, music, activities for the kids, etc. Will have plate lunches 4 sale. On-line donations can also be made at the following link: http://community.als.net/melbasangels. Please leave a comment who you are donating for.
ALS can strike anyone, anywhere, anytime and no one knows why. It is always fatal and there are currently no drugs to slow, stop, or end it. A cure has to be found for this horrific disease!!!
