2021 One Dollar Difference MASSACHUSETTS CHAPTER

Phyl Gerber's "One Year Later" Celebration

Please join us to remember and commemorate Phyl's life on her Yahrzeit (the anniversary of her passing) at Look Park in Northampton, MA on June 13, 2021

Here's the plan....
  • 10:00 am - 10:45 am - arrive and join us at the Dow Pavilioin (tell the folks at the gate you are there for the Phyl-in-Tropics ALS Fundraiser so they don't charge you for parking)
  • 10:45 am - 12:00 noon - walk around the park sharing stories about Phyl with friends and family (twice if you are able)
  • 12:00 noon - 2:00pm  - join us for a picnic lunch and informal gathering (please bring your own food and drinks due to COVID)

We will have photos of Phyl showing constantly and music (probably the Beatles). There is plenty of space to socially distance safely. And remember to wear a tropical shirt!  We will light candles, a Yahrzeit tradition, in her memory. You may bring your own candle but we will provide them as well.


If you can, please donate here to our forth and final ALS fundraiser
The money that we raise will go towards a mission that Phyl cared about deeply - a world without ALS. Phyl' was diagnosed with ALS on March 15,2017 and we spent the next three years praying for a cure while we tried to live our lives to the fullest.  There is currently NO cure for ALS, and Phyl died quietly in our home, surrounded by family on June 15, 2020.  We miss her deeply and our family is committed to this final fundraiser in her name.  
The money we raise will go to:
  • Continuing the 150+ research projects looking into the causes of ALS in hopes of developing better treatments
  • Supporting patient services clinics, support groups, equipment lending, and transportation
  • Leading the way in helping to ensure the ALS community has proper access to care
The Massachusetts Chapter of the ALS Association was very good to us.  Our family is supporting this important organization in hopes that someday no one will have to experience the pain of losing a wife, mother, daughter, aunt or best friend to ALS.  For the full story of Phyl's illness, go to: https://changingthestory.net/2020/07/19/our-journey-with-als/
