Welcome to My Personal Page
The ALS Walk for Life is one of the world's largest gatherings of ALS patients, families and friends. Now in its 15th year, the Walk has raised over $11 million in support of Chicago's independent leader in ALS, the Les Turner ALS Foundation.
The money raised through the Walk helps people currently living with ALS (PALS) and their families through the Foundation’s Home and Community Service and grant programs. It also supports the Les Turner ALS Research and Patient Center at Northwestern Medicine where PALS are seen by a multi-disciplinary clinical staff at the Lois Insolia ALS Clinic, ensuring no part of their disease goes unseen and untreated. The Center also supports three full functioning research laboratories, each on providing hope of a future without ALS.
I'm participating in the 2017 ALS Walk for Life because I don't ever want my father, David W. Dillon's battle with ALS; which lasted for 2 years, & from which he ultimately passed to ever be forgotten. I also believe in the work of the Les Turner ALS Foundation, I believe in providing the best possible care to Chicagoland area ALS patients and their families and I believe that the money we raise together will lead to finding the cure for ALS. Anything that I can do in memory of my father which can help others to reduce or eliminate the effects of ALS will be a blessing to others.
Join me as I Walk to end ALS.
