Please join us in person or in spirit by supporting Team Blue Skies for our 11th Annual ALS Walk on Sunday, October 15th!
Thank you for being a caring-for-Carol kind of person. Something that truly helped her cope was that year after year people still cared enough to raise awareness about ALS, even though the "novelty" of her diagnosis may have worn off.
PERSPECTIVE ON ALS:
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. Even Carol, a relentless optimist, described the diagnosis as a death sentence and shared that it felt like drowning in cement. No one should feel this way - and so we walk in our crowns for Carol, year after year. Even though Carol can longer appreciate all you're doing for the cause, she knew we were committed to walking until there is at least a viable treatment, and then a cure.
ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need. Thank you for your consideration in joining the movement to provide help and hope.
