Shirley Marshall passed away 18 years ago of ALS at the age of 63. Shirley was a devote Christian, and mother of five children. Shirley had a passion for poetry, reading books, and was a competitive bridge player. The Marshall family has been closely involved with the local ALS chapter, participating in the walks and raising money for research for almost 20 years to hopefully one day find a cure for this disease.
ALS currently affects around 30,000 people in the United States, with 5,000 new cases each year. The ALS Association is on a mission to discover treatments and a cure for ALS while serving and advocating for those affected by the disease.
