No Quitters for Q
ALS has robbed our lives. It has taken my husband and the father of Ethan and Connor. It has taken a brother, an uncle, a brother-in-law, a son-in-law, a cousin, a great friend from our lives. Eric fought hard to continue being with us. He went through so much, emotionally and physically. It makes me so sad when I remember the pain in his eyes. He taught us all so much. He taught us to be strong, to be courages, and to have faith.
Please help me fight ALS in memory of Eric and more than anything to help those that are battling ALS. Let’s fight for a cure. This is the 8th year that our team is participating in the ALS Walk for Life. I am so proud of you/our team. The first year we did the Walk we had a tremendous turn out. I saw a few small teams and I thought to myself...that's probably going to be us in a few years, but every year we have had over 100 walkers. I feel like I/we do not stand alone, and it's because of you.
Join us at our annual Walk, and/or donate to our webpage. I have noticed that many organizations charge to do a Walk for a cause, but for this Walk there is no fee. However, I would like to challenge everyone to at least raise $20 or more. People are so giving. Create a webpage and send it out to those around you.
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.
Join our team as we Walk to end ALS. Thank you so much. Any help would be so greatly appreciated. God bless you and your families.
