THE STORY:

Those of you who have had the pleasure of meeting Tonya or are of the lucky group to call her a friend know of her innocence and kind hearted nature. Tonya, my mother, is and has always been one of my favorite people. She has showed me more love than I could ever need. She has always been there for anyone that needed her help or just a kind soul to converse with no matter the topic. Even now with this terrible news, she wants to stand on her own and fight and fight, she will. Tonya and our family are now faced with the overwhelming difficult challenge of ALS. Not only does ALS present major mental and physical challenges but financial ones as well. Tonya has been diagnosed with bulbar ALS which is an aggressive and terrifying disease. Unfortunately, Tim and Tonya's financial situation has never been worse, they have no savings and are filing for bankruptcy due to a failed business and her HMO insurance just will not provide all the quality care she needs. The cost of ALS can be one of the biggest burdens of the patient's life as well as the family. The goal in most ALS patients lives are support and comfort, and we need all the help we can get. My mother is rapidly losing the use of her hands and legs, and she is having difficulty doing the most simple tasks without help. Drinking water is becoming a challenge and eating is slowing becoming dangerous. We are asking for financial support to ensure the best in-home care we can provide as well as hospice care when the time comes. We will be donating all money that is not used for her care to the ALS foundation in her name when the time comes. Thank you for any support you can offer and please keep us in your prayers.
