Yes everyone get behind finding a cure, my best mate is slowly losing his battle with MND, he is 44 years old with two young kids, it is just shattering to watch someone who was once strong and vibrant succumbing to one of the worst imaginable diseases with no cure as yet, so show your support in anyway you can. God bless Marnie for continuing the fight xx

I lost my late husband to Bulbar ALS in Jan. 2002.

I cannot begin to tell you how shocked we were to learn of his illness in this very active, athletic man as all of you were with your loved ones and friends diagnosised with this dastardly diseased. I am so sorry for your losses.

Throughout my life ALS has always been there in some form. One of my favorite movies growing up was the Lou Gehrig Story. I have no idea why, but it touched me deeply.

I lost my late husband to Bulbar ALS in Jan. 2002.

I cannot begin to tell you how shocked we were to learn of his illness in this very active, athletic man as all of you were with your loved ones and friends diagnosised with this dastardly diseased. I am so sorry for your losses.

Throughout my life ALS has always been there in some form. One of my favorite movies growing up was the Lou Gehrig Story. I have no idea why, but it touched me deeply.

ALS was to be expected among some my patients at the hospital where I worked, yet it was so unexpected and difficult to process that three of our former neighbors in different cities (two different States) also passed away from ALS. One of my friends from high school husband had ALS. Shockingly, a neighbor where I now lived passed away from Bulbar ALS last year!

The most chilling experience I have had was three years ago while standing in drug store here in Mt. Juliet looking for a stuffed animal when the lady to left of me said, “I am trying to find something comforting to hold at night since my husband passed away from ALS.” My mouth dropped opened then I confided in her that this is what I was also doing for the exact same reason. When out of the blue, the lady to the right of me asked, “What did we just say, did she overhear ALS mentioned?” Confirming this was indeed our conversation, the lady of the right of me began to cry as she shared with us her husband had passed away two weeks ago from ALS! What are the odds of this happening… yes it is a true story.

This will be my 10th Walk to Defeat ALS, but this year although it will be bittersweet, I now will walk with renewed hope that the recent announcement from ALS Researchers latest findings has brought us closer to a cause, a cure and hopeful eradication of ALS. It is long overdue, it has been a long time coming since 1869.

Never give up open! Keep ALS awareness in the forefront and keep the funding for research coming in.
