ALS Walk

I'm doing a virtual "walk" for my brother-in-law Scott who has a rapid form of ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. This is a wicked debilitating disease causing degeneration of the voluntary muscles.

Symptoms for Scott began in about August of 2008 and is now unable to walk, talk or eat. He in his early 40s. He has a wife (my husband's sister) and two daughters. Scott is not ready to go and neither his family ready to let him go.

Just imagine being imprisoned within yourself not able to move or communicate while having your sound mind and ability to hear. PLEASE help if you can, support the efforts to find a cure and help support families of those going through the pain of caring for a loved one with ALS.

I've set up an account with Fight ALS Walk to help fund raise in honor of my brother-in-law. If you are not able to give financially, please pray for his immediate family especially, in addition to Scott.
