BENEFITING: The ALS Association
EVENT DATE: Oct 25, 2014
My brother-in-law Matt Burgess was diagnosed with ALS in 2012. Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
He has a beautiful daughter, Julia and a son on the way. Please help us fight this fight!
