Hi Friends and Family, Thank you for supporting this cause with us over the last few years. 2020 brought new challenges for patients with ALS. Please donate generously if you are able to.
In memory of my mom, Gulshan, please #WalkToDefeatALS VIRTUALLY with Team HOPE on October 31st (with your halloween costumes!) and consider donating to our team. With your help, we will make a difference in the lives of people affected by this terrible disease.
My mom fought this disease for 4 long years before she lost her life to it. I invite you to join me as we honor her HOPE, full-of-life memory, and support the patients living with this disease today. Feel free to forward this link to your friends and family.
You can never find a better best friend than your mother, so respect her, cherish her and LOVE her while you can. She could be gone one day and you'd find no one like her.
I thank you in advance for helping me reach my Walk to Defeat ALS® fundraising goal!

Why We Need Your Help
This is an exciting opportunity for us to work together to support those affected by Lou Gehrig's Disease and to spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure.
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.
