The ALS Survivors Club is not a group you ever want to join. Sadly, May 8, 2021 is the day my family's membership card arrived. It's the day my wonderful, funny, smart and hilarious brother Mike passed away at the age of 44 from this wretched disease. Gone far too soon. I cannot imagine how we would have managed as a family without the support of the ALS Society. We know first hand how much the ALS Society means to those dealing with an ALS diagnosis. From the research they do, to the support they provide, their work is necessary, important and invaluable.
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (also known as ALS, Lou Gehrig's disease, or motor neuron disease) is a disease that gradually paralyzes a person as their brain is no longer able to communicate with muscles that they are typically able to move at will. As the muscles of the body break down, someone living with ALS will lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, swallow, and eventually breathe.
I want to contribute to a future without ALS, which is why I'm gearing up for the Revolution Ride on September 25, 2022 in Dundas, Ontario. I hope I can count on you for support.
