Thank you all for your continued support throughout the last 5 years. This year will present a challenge in our ability to fundraise due to the Chinese virus. There will be no organized walks however, we are encouraging neighborhood walks on September 19th Chapter wide. You can receive yard signs and more info on September 11th at Badger Mountain trailhead between 3-6pm. Proper PPE and Social distancing is encouraged and will be maintained.
I’m sad to report our family has once again come face to face with this terrible disease , Pam’s younger sister has been diagnosed with ALS. It’s very difficult to face again as a family and rest assured she has the same grace, determination and fight to deal with it as did Pam.
On the local front, the KADLEC ALS Telemedicine Clinic and our Medical Equipment Loan Locker managed by NuMotion and overseen by Rocky Smith, are institutionalized here now. Our next goal, is to have a full time care services coordinator here in Tri-Cities. That remains in the works.
Please come out again this year and help Pam’s Pals Reach our Walk to Defeat ALS® fundraising goal! The Walk to Defeat ALS raises funds to support those affected by ALS and to spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure.
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 a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis. ALS can strike anyone, and presently there is no known cause or cure.
That’s why I’m walking. To change the statistics. To bring help and hope to those living with the disease. To ensure that no one ever hears the words: “You Have ALS” again.
The past two years have brought incredible advancements in ALS research, expanded access to care for people living with ALS, and enabled legislation that impacts the quality of life of people with ALS and their families.
But, we can’t stop now. The key to a cure begins with you.
Please consider walking with me or sponsoring me. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease.
