Project ALS Family
My involvement with Project ALS came about when I was diagnosed with ALS. I think the work they are doing is absolutely essential in finding a remedy to this shockingly debilitating disease. When I first met Valerie and Meredith, some four and a half years ago, I was able to walk and had the use of my limbs. Today, I am wheelchair bound and no longer able to feed myself or brush my teeth. I am also forced to use a respirator to breathe. When I look into the future, it’s not as dismal as it would have been because of Project ALS’s efforts to find if not a cure for the disease, at least a way to slow its insidious progression. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed and hope that Project ALS soon finds a much-needed, lifesaving solution. SALUD, Project ALS!
