Every 90 minutes someone in the USA is diagnosed with and succumbs to ALS. 80% of these patients live 2-5 years. Despite it's 160 year history there is no diagonostic test, treatment nor cure for this cruel disease.
Nancy was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, in July of 2009. She has lost her ability to independently move, speak, eat, swallow, or even hold her eyes open. She is ventilator dependent and therefore requires skilled nursing care. The amount of care and medical supplies needed is astronomical. Unfortunately, insurance only covers a fraction of these needs.
Please help us battle this dreaded disease by supporting our family in our annual Kimmswick 5K fundraiser.
