Mission Statement

To lead the fight to cure and treat ALS through global, cutting-edge research, and to empower people with Lou Gehrig’s Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support.

Palm Harbor Homes, Inc. and its wholly-owned modular subsidiary, Nationwide Homes, Inc. joined ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" and surprised Coach Jeremy Williams and his family with a new home. This exciting episode will air on ABC on Sunday, May 16.

This Tribute Fund has been set up in honor of Jeremy Williams to help find a cure for this disease.

Coach Williams was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, in June 2008. Despite his battle with this devastating disease, Coach Williams led Greenville High to the second round of the state playoffs and was featured in a series of articles in the "Atlanta Journal Constitution."

Williams first showed signs of ALS five years ago when he tore ligaments in his left thumb while breaking up a scuffle at football practice. As an athlete and coach, Williams had experienced all the usual nagging pains that come with the game, but this time, the pain wouldn't go away. During the next 18 months, he began feeling numbness in both arms from his fingertips to his elbows. He also noticed that the muscles in his forearms were deteriorating.

Williams was worried. He thought it could be ALS, but he wasn't quite sure. He went to three doctors and got three different opinions. Then, in June of 2008, a team of doctors at Baltimore's Johns Hopkins University confirmed ALS, an incurable disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and eventually breathe.

"The prognosis is 'when' ... as nobody has ever been cured of ALS," Williams said. "It's a matter of time. Some die within two to three years, some in five to 10 years, and some in 20. Now, I will be cured one day with Jesus Christ, and I believe that."

BE SURE TO WATCH JEREMY'S INSPIRATIONAL STORY ON EXTREME MAKEOVER: HOME EDITION! See the Williams' family receive a new home from Palm Harbor and Nationwide Homes on Sunday, May 16, at 8/7 Central on ABC! Find out more on http://www.extremephn.com.

There is no doubt that grants are entirely different as compared to the traditional loans and scholarships. The application process includes filing in a very Free Application tudy abroad for indian tudent ( %url ) Federal Student Aid also it can be found in libraries, secondary and post-secondary schools, governmental agencies and online. It takes time to create corrections plus they usually can function as the difference with your being awarded a scholarship along with the honor reaching to an alternative student.

What you posted made a lot of sense. But, what about this? suppose you composed a catchier post title? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, but suppose you added a title that grabbed folk's attention? I mean The ALS Association is kinda vanilla. You should look at Yahoo's front page and see how they create article headlines to get viewers interested. You might add a video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about what you've written. In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

No obstante, dos sentencias de la Audiencia Nacional del 4 de diciembre de dos mil quince (caso Bankia) y otra del diecinueve de febrero de 2016 (caso Abanca), concluyeron que las compañías sí deben llevar un registro diario de la jornada de los trabajadores para que los inspectores puedan concretar si se excede no en la jornada de trabajo., Si estás interesado en hacerte con este pequeño dongle para reforzar la seguridad de tu equipo y de este modo olvidarte de usar contraseñas de acceso debes saber que llegará al mercado próximamente a un costo cercano a los cincuenta dólares.

When you find this type of situation in a small business the benefits could be devastating due to the few associates you will need to count on. Quite a few websites, retailers and showrooms are offering Bush products.
