Washington, DC Walk

Dr. J's Love Machine

We are participating in the ALS Walk once again this fall in memory of Jules.  It has been 8 years since his death.  As you know, ALS is a very unforgiving illness.  Please join us in walking on the morning of October 29 down by the Washington Monument, or donating what you can.

Thanks for your support,

Carolyn

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.
