We will be walking in honor of Fran Finn who still shines brightly in so many lives. She will always be remembered as a loving mother, wonderful wife, dear sister, and close friend. A lovely website has been created and dedicated to her to show how strongly she is still loved: http://fran.finn.muchloved.com/
Together, we want to make a difference in the lives of those affected by Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Please show your support by walking with us. If you can donate, we'll be humbled by your contribution. We hope to see you, your friends, family, neighbors and/or coworkers there!
Why We Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, 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 an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
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.
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease yet it still costs loved ones an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.
