.....Racing to remember our Loca Familia
Less than 10% of all ALS cases have familial ties. Our family has had FOUR family members in the last THREE generations fall victim to ALS and we vowed to help find a cure.
The Emory ALS Team and The Cure for ALS Team has helped us with this vow by providing numerous activities for us to learn and assist. From the State Capital, the National ALS Symposium, The ALS Walk, The Fiesta Fun Runs, and the Terance Mathis Celebrity Classic....even all the way to the Duke ALS Team. We have met so many inspiratonal people along the way--and our journey has just begun!
Last year Dr. Glass's team at the Emory ALS Clinic provided our eldest daugther, Meaghan, the opportunity to work with his team in the Lab and also at the clinic. Through her experiences in both locations she has learned so much about the research and also the strength of the PALS that her lessons are far reaching. We will do anything in our power to help this team (and all ALS Teams) as they help our families!
This is our Fourth Year at this event and our goal is even GREATER! Help us make a difference!
Please join our team, join the fun and lets get LOCO!!
