Something was "off". You know that pinch in the gut that you get when something isn't right with your body ?
So began doctors appointments, tests and scans. Time passed and the body degradation progressed. More appointments, more tests and more scans were done. Still nothing concrete was determined. ALS is a diagnosis of "exclusion". You eliminate all other diseases that might be the cause.
We hoped, we prayed, we yearned for answers. Finally the news came, NOT the news any of us wanted to hear. The news that knocks the wind out of you. "You have ALS". Those are the words that our Friend, Wife, Mother and Grandmother: Kathy Burns received on that early December day.
We all took a few extra pictures and cherished each moment a little longer that Christmas. We gathered together as a family and a team, the support system for Kathy our "Nana Kate".
HELP US RETURN THE PUNCH
Please Join our Team - "Knockout for Kathy"
On September 19, 2020 at the White River State Park there will be a fundraising "walk" to help defeat ALS. We all would like you to be a part of the "Nana Kate Crew". If you can't join our "Crew" to walk, please consider making a donation to our Team. Help us spread the word about this earth shattering, neuromuscular disease.
All contributions support those living with ALS and advances the research to finding a cure. We're looking to raise $7,000. Let's KO this event for Kathy and all others struggling with ALS!
Registration begins at 9:00 AM and the "Walk" starts at 10:00 AM
