In February of 2012, my dear friend, Kevin Swan, was diagnosed with ALS, also commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, a progressive neurodegenerative disease that causes muscle weakness, paralysis, and ultimately, respiratory failure. Soon after his diagnosis, Kevin, born entrepreneur and all around incredible human being that he his, started his own foundation to raise awareness and create action to discover effective treatments and a cure for ALS. October 15th is Yoga Day for ALS, so I will be holding an online yoga class to for anyone who wants participate and raise awareness and funds for Kevin's A Life Story Foundation. Kevin is, in so many ways, a hero to me-- his friendship has enriched my life and his warrior spirit has inspired me to fight the good fight countless times over. Giving back to Kevin and other individuals living with ALS has become a mission of mine in this life, and I hope you will join me in this worthy pursuit. Thank you for donating to this fundraiser, and I hope you'll tune into my yoga class for ALS on Saturday, October 15th at www.youtube.com/NicolePacent .
