My Personal Walk to Defeat ALS Page
Thank you for helping us strike out ALS! JFB's League is committed to raising money to spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure in memory of John F Bianco, Jr. To me, John was the best father I could've asked for. To you, he might have been friend, family, coworker or a joyful smile and a powerful handshake. A lifelong baseball fan, we honor him with starting a league in his name.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis. ALS can strike anyone, and presently there is no known cause or cure.
That's why I'm walking. To change the statistics. To bring help and hope to those living with the disease. To ensure that no one ever hears the words: "You have ALS" again.
The past two years have brought incredible advancements in ALS research, expanded access to care for people living with ALS, and enabled legislation that impacts the quality of life of people with ALS and their families.
But we can't stop now. The key to a cure begins with you.
Please consider walking with me or sponsoring me. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease.
