It's that time again, the Walk to Defeat ALS. Thanks in part to all of you, we were able to raise a great deal of money during the past years. The donations had directly helped Howard, Allie, Jenny and me through services and support. And although there have been some strides in researching treatment for this horrible desease, we are still far from completing the journey to a cure. Our team is committed to raising money to support people in our community with ALS and spread awareness of the urgency to find treatment and a cure.
As a family, we lived with ALS for 4 years, and Howard unfortunately lost his battle in May 2017. 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. This crippling disease can strike anyone. It can costs loved ones an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need.
Please consider sponsoring our team, Howard's Buddies,on Saturday, October 10th at The Virtual Walk to Defeat ALS® Jersey Shore. Please consider donating to help make a difference in the lives of all people living with ALS and their families.
