THERE IS NO CURE FOR ALS
MY TIME IS RUNNING OUT
My ALS journey began in the beginning of April 2019. It all started with a muscle twitch or "Fasciculation" in my upper left arm. The twitches continued to spread throughout my entire body.
November 7th, 2020 My first "Walk," I was able to walk the entire mile. Today, I get around in my power wheelchair. My body is extremely weak. My hands have atrophied to the point where I need assistance with opening, closing things, dressing, and even eating. My legs have given out, and I lose my breath easily. Life is becoming more difficult by the day.
This horrible disease has taken away my ability to walk. Soon, it will take away my ability to talk, eat and breathe!! My spirits are high! I'm not sure how much time I have left. 2-5 years is the average life span of an ALS patient. For now, I will keep on and make the most of every day I have left!
November is not far away and I am set on reaching my goal as soon as possible. Please, help support me and join My Personal Walk To Defeat ALS on November 20, 2021!! My goal is to make this Walk larger than last year's Walk!!! I look forward to having you by my side.
I cannot say how Absolutely Wonderful our ALS Arizona Chapter has been for all of us fighting for our lives!! They are there for our entire family and continue to serve local families living with ALS.
I hope to see you at the walk! Let me know if you can make it. We will be making new 'Peggy Posse" t-shirts.
