If you follow my posts at all, you know I have rarely asked my friends to support ALS organizations but I am now. As many of you know I will have had ALS for 19 years in October and it has made me a quadriplegic on a ventilator. During those years, ALS has not only taken a physical toll on me but has caused some difficult financial hardships at times as well. There is one ALS organization that helps people with ALS through these difficult financial times and also gives help with acquiring equipment as well as granting some wishes like my seeing Tim McGraw in concert with my friends Wendy Allen Gilder, Herbie Gilder and Matt Blanton. This amazing organization is appropriately called ALS Guardian Angels (ALSGA). Unfortunately, the needs of people dealing with ALS in their lives is quickly outstripping ALSGA's capacity to help especially because other ALS organizations are cutting back on their living assistance programs and sending them to ALSGA.
I am asking my friends to join my team, Ragingbear's Angels, and donate to this incredibly important organization to those of us fighting ALS. For those of you who remember that Sikeston Bulldog in the picture, I am asking that you support me now with dollars like you supported the winning teams I played on with your cheers then. I have fought my ALS with the spirit of a Bulldog and I know my Bulldog friends will show that same spirit in supporting me in this effort!!!
