THE STORY:

Dear Friends!!! I have been so motivated by my friend Craig "Sa'ids" journey! I am running the Brooklyn Half Marathon May 17th ,in his honor and to raise funds for his Trust! 13.1 miles through Brooklyn.  I hope his story below will move you as it moved me!

In 1994, at the age of 30, Craig Oster was given the “death sentence” diagnosis of ALS, better known as “Lou Gehrig’s disease.” Even though Craig’s physical functioning was slipping away, he successfully fought to fulfill his dream of earning a Ph.D. in clinical psychology at Michigan State University in 1996. What you can type in five minutes, currently takes Dr Craig Oster about a half-hour to accomplish. Dr Craig (the name by which many refer to him) entered hospice in late 2008, after he had lost over 45 pounds of muscle and was requiring breathing machines to make it through the night. Digging deeply and praying earnestly, with an undeterred spirit he gave everything to continuing his holistic healing quest. Dr Craig was discharged from hospice on May 30th, 2009.

All donations will go to the Craig Oster Trust for Craig’s health care and caregiver expenses, to allow him to keep living independently while he dedicates his days to serving humanity through THE HEALERS ALS scientific research, inspiring and educating. The Craig Oster Trust is not a 501c non-profit, but THE HEALERS campaign is in the initial development stage of creating a THE HEALERS 501c non-profit.
