On September 24th, I’m challenging myself, while living with ALS. I want to do more for people and families living with ALS by participating in ALS Canada's Revolution Ride, biking 40km through Dundas, Hamilton, and Ancaster in Ontario — we are a volunteer-powered, as the Vice-chair of the committee this year, I am blessed and honoured to be involved organizing and riding in this amazing and inspiring fundraising event, held to help support the ALS community and to provide hope and help to people and families affected by ALS.
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.
Generations of my family have been lost to ALS, we have a genetic form of familial ALS - C9orf72. My family, my children, and I are holding on desperately for an effective treatment or cure for this disease. Every day we are getting closer!
I refuse to have another generation of my family taken by ALS, which is why I’m gearing up for the Revolution Ride on September 24, I hope I can count on you for support.
Please consider donating to my fundraising efforts, as we work towards a future without ALS.
We need your support now more than ever!
We can't do it alone!
We are stronger together!
