Dee's Bling Team
On July 22, 2017 Dee finished her journey with ALS and joined her Lord and Saviour in Heaven.
Before passing Dee made a commitment to recruit her family and friends to join the efforts to make a difference in the lives of others affected by ALS by establishing Dee's Bling Team.
Our team is committed to raising money to support people in our community with ALS and to help find effective treatments and a cure. Please consider joining our team in the Walk to Defeat ALS or choose a team member from the list below and donate to the cause.
An additional way you can support our cause is to purchase some custom jewelry Dee helped design in an effort to raise money for our local ALS chapter.

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.
