This weekend we participated in the Walk To Defeat ALS at San Pedro Park in San Antonio, TX. It was awesome to represent my grandmother; however, it was hard to see her name on the “In Memory” sign.
The ALS Association is still short on their goal for this year, if you would like to donate I have attached a link to my personal webpage: http://web.alsa.org/goto/kensielee
Our shirts were awesome. The inspiration came from an old comic book called “The Defenders.”
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.This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease though support is bringing researchers closer to an answer. In the mean time it costs 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.
We took the extra step, and signed a petition to get more funds for ALS patients.
All the kind folks who came out to support the cause.
This is my family. We are not complete, but we are thankful for the time we had with Nannie.
