ABOUT TEAM FERRARI
Team Ferrari was formed 7 years ago when Lou Ferrari was diagnosed with ALS in May 2014. ALS is a horrific disease for which there are no effective treatments and tragically there is no cure.
We lost Lou on December 8, 2014 just 7 short months after he was diagnosed. Our lives were shattered. We lost a great man, a friend to everyone he met.
I learned just after Lou passed away, in January 2015 that one of our life-long friends Cheryl Martens Strella, was also diagnosed with ALS. She and her family shared in Lou’s journey; and supported us through everything. We could not bear this pain that was thrust upon us again. We never wanted to hear that another loved one had this disease, but it happened. Cheryl lost her battle with ALS on 8/31/17.
There are no word to describe the horrific effects of this disease. The list of people we know and love just grows. We remember the recent losses of Ed Lexon and Steve Homand.
Although COVID threw a wrench in our fund raising activities last year - WE ARE BACK! 7 years and going strong - JOIN US - IT IS VIRTUAL AND EASY!!!!!!
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 a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis. ALS can strike anyone, and presently there is no known cause or cure.
Please consider walking with me or sponsoring me. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease.
