ALS is still here so we're still raising money!
Thanks for checking into my page! A lot has changed since I first met my buddy, Paul Launer, November of 2012. Our mutual friend, Bob Lee, introduced us because Paul was looking for someone to write things down he wanted to leave for his elementary-school aged daughters, Aubrey and Sarah. Thus began our friendship and two year project! The biggest thing that HASN'T changed, though, is that we still have to find a cure for ALS and we still have PALS (Patients with ALS) to help--whether it be through respite care, nursing assistance, communication equipment assistance, social worker assistance . . . You name it, the Les Turner ALS Foundation does it all, from research to patient care and support.
As you probably know he lost his hard-fought battle with ALS on July 3, 2015. We started Paul Launer's Iron Horse Brigade for the 2013 ALS Walk for Life, with this year marking our 5th anniversary as a team and the 40th anniversary of the Les Turner ALS Foundation. Once again our friends Vince and Pat Foglia, through their Foglia Family Foundation, have offered to match your donations dollar for dollar, up to $50,000! Where else can you donate and have your contributions earn a 100% return?
The ALS stories continue. Just yesterday I heard that the actor and playwright, Sam Shepard, died from ALS. On Facebook a college sorority sister said her college sweetheart was diagnosed with ALS last week and committed suicide. Her dad died from ALS in 2005. My former next door neighbor lost her mom to ALS and then about 5 years later her husband. We need to find a cure.
So please help. Give generously if you can, though I greatly appreciate any and all donations!
