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.
