This journey to where I am today has been unique... After multiple brain surgeries for a cyst and a slow recovery with many unanswered questions, my Care Team at Columbia confirmed an ALS diagnosis.
So how did we get to be Greg's Army....
Taking a step back and giving some back story... I am a happily married man who was blessed to marry his high school sweetheart. We have been together for almost 30 years and married for 21. We have an amazingly bright, beautiful and caring teenager daughter who like her mother has stepped up in every way to help.
Late one Monday night in March, we got the call we were dreading from the doctor...my wife calmly took my hand and said we have an army around us and my response was WE GOT THIS, this simply became the motto we live by each day.
Where will this take us - I don't know, but I hope and believe a cure is coming. For right now I take one day at a time and enjoy all of life gifts supported by the most amazing family and friends.
Please join me to support myself and my family on the Walk to Defeat ALS. If you are able to donate, please consider helping me reach my fundraising goal....together we can make a difference!
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
That’s why we’re participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS. To bring hope. To raise awareness. To provide resources and services to families free of charge. To help unlock the mystery of ALS and find the key to treatments a cure. Will you join us?
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need. Join the movement to provide help and hope today!
