Why did George Poniatowski need Generals?
As many of you know, my dad George was diagnosed with ALS in 2015 and passed away from the disease on January 31, 2019. My dad loved to run around a soccer field coaching my younger brother's team. He enjoyed everything about volleyball, from coaching my sister's team to playing in adult leagues. He also won every game of foosball I watched him play while growing up. These once routine hobbies were something that he couldn't enjoy in his last several years of life.
My dad needed breathing machines to keep his lungs pumping. He needed to be fed each of his meals. And he needed a caregiver at all times to make sure that nothing else went wrong. ALS is a progressive disease that deteriorates the muscles and lungs, and there is no cure. That is why we Walk for Life with the Les Turner foundation, an organization that was integral in providing resources to make my father as close to comfortable during his final years.
Join me as I participate in the Les Turner ALS Foundation’s ALS Walk for Life for the 4th year in a row. This organization provides the best comprehensive care to people living with ALS and their families in Chicagoland, and I believe that the money we raise together will lead to treatments and a cure for ALS.
Please consider making a donation to help me reach my fundraising goal. Together, we can make an impact in the fight against ALS!
