Fundraising Goal $500.00
I am participating in the 2019 Walk to End ALS on because I want to support the organisation that has done so much to help me with my own battle with this awful disease  I also want to honour those we have loved and lost and show my support for the 3,000 Canadians and their families living with this disease.
Apart from the moral and informational support offered both through the Canadian ALS Society and the ALS Clinic at the Ottawa hospital, we have taken advantage of the ALS Loan Cupboard to receive lift chair, walkers, hospital bed and mattress as well as other sundry mobility aids. This is an expensive disease! I estimate the costs over the last 2 years for me alone to be in excess of $66,000
 
ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a terminal disease that takes away people’s ability to walk, talk, and eventually breathe on their own. This cause is very important to me and your support makes an immediate impact. 
 
Your support will help to:

create a better day-to-day reality for people and families living with ALS by providing community-based support throughout Ontario - like in-home visits and support groups – as well as delivering necessary medical equipment like hospital beds, wheelchairs, stairlifts and other items that increase safety in the home, at no cost to those who need them.
 

further scientific progress by investing in the ALS Canada Research Program, which funds promising ALS research. This program provides peer-reviewed grants to researchers whose work has the greatest potential to advance the field of ALS. There’s been more progress made in ALS research in the last five years than over the last century – we need to keep building on this momentum.

Please consider donating toward my 2019 Walk to End ALS.
 
Support me now - we are stronger together!
Thanks, in advance  for your generosity
