Lou Gehrig's Disease- Martine Valadez
Organized by: Rosa Flores
I have a family member named Martine Valadez that was diagnosed with ALS in October of 2015. Just to give a little information on the disease, ALS aka Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, aka Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. There is no cure for the disease, so the affected usually only live about four or five years. So, my goal is to collect money to keep him comfortable and give him the best quality of life with pain medication, a comfortable bed, and a wheelchair, for example. Martine resides in Mexico, and therefore financial assistance is very difficult to come by. My family and I would greatly appreciate any contribution you may be able to give at this time, no matter how small. Please help us keep Martine comfortable for the remainder of his life.
