The picture on this page is Lynnae and her grandsons, Brecken and Maddox. Lynnae didn't let ALS get in the way of enjoying her family and friends. She was an inspiration to all who know her. ALS took away so much from Lynnae. She was confined to her wheelchair and lost her ability to use her hands and talk. Despite her disease, Lynnae always greeted everyone with an amazing smile and bright personality. She wanted to know how everyone else was doing. ALS was the furthest thing from her mind. She never told you how life had become a struggle for her or that she depended on others to do many things she use to do herself. She really has taken the lemons life handed her and made lemonade.
Lynnae went to be with the Lord on March 9, 2016. She struggled with ALS for almost 12 years. Although we are happy she is finally free of pain and dancing in Heaven, we all miss her greatly.
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.
