As you know Bill was diagnosed with ALS July 2017. It was a shock to all of us who love Bill. We are taking one day at a time and doing a pretty good job. We have installed stair lifts and purchased a mobility van for Bill’s wheelchair. The wheelchair and van has enabled us to enjoy every day life; going for walks on the Iron Horse trail and in our neighborhood and enjoy restaurants. The normal daily life events we took for granted. This is a sad and scary journey but we are able to carry on due to all the support of so many people. I don’t say this lightly. It is so uplifting to feel all the love and concern from everyone.
Please consider making a donation to the ALS Association. You can also have fun, make a difference and walk with us on Sunday, September 30th, 1pm, at Heather Farms Park in Walnut Creek. I know everyone is very busy but if you can join us it would mean the world to us.
Why We Need Your Help
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. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, though support is bringing researchers closer to an answer. In the meantime it costs an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need. Join the movement to bring help and hope today.
