There are no words to describe the pain and suffering my son endured as I watched this horrific disease take over his body.  Jeremy was a healthy and strong young man with everything in the world to live for.  In fact, I believe that no one wanted to live more than he did. He fought this illness every day with such courage and determination to beat it. But there is nothing out there to prevent or stop this disease. Nothing.

My son is gone 11 years now and I’m not so sure we are any closer to finding a cure. That just shouldn’t be.

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.
