Diane's De"Feet"ers: De"Feet"ing ALS One Step at a Time
In November 2018, our mom, grandma, sister, and friend, Diane, was diagnosed with ALS. Since that time, we have been touched deeply by the prayers, love, and support shown to us from family, friends, strangers, and our new family at the LES Turner ALS Foundation. The courage and faith that our mom and others living with this disease and their caretakers, like our dad, exemplify day in and day out have inspired us in our own lives each and every day.
We hope by participating in the "Les Turner ALS Walk for Life," we can raise awareness and meaningful funds to help find a cure and further support the brave men and women who fight this disease every day along with their amazing care takers.
Please consider joining our team, Diane's DeFeeters, and help us De"Feet" ALS one step at a time. This year's walk will be virtual, so all you have to do to join our team is take a walk between now and this weekend, 9/27, and take a picture or video clip and text it to: 708-363-1518 (Jenny's cell), and/or if you could please consider a donation, we would greatly appreciate it!
In addition to our mom, this year we also walk in honor of Mr. Jon Newsome, and in loving memory of Mr. Tom Fruge, Mr. Jim Ginsburgh, Mrs. Mary Rooney, Mr. John Flynn Rooney, Mrs. Agnes McCoy, Mrs. Sheila Grant Gibbs, and Mrs. Jan Regan, as well as all of those living with this disease and their incredible caregivers, doctors and nurses, and the Les Turner staff, especially Nurse Julie and Easton.
For this being a "rare" disease, there sure are way too many lives changed forever by it. Let's keep fighting to find a cure!
We, also, plan to have a brief ZOOM Social Toast for all those who donate and are available on Sunday, September 27th at 7pm, for us to say thank you and visit with Diane and Mike, and each other! Details to follow via email.
With Love, Faith, and Friendship-
