ALS is not an incurable disease - it is an underfunded one.
In the past decade, I have known, or dear friends have known, several people who have been diagnosed with ALS. For quite a while now, my prayers have consistently included someone who suffers from or has recently passed away from ALS.
This summer, as I did in 2015, I'm fundraising for a ride through southern New England to raise money and awareness for ALS. As compared to some chronic and deadly diseases, ALS has remains stubbornly resistant to a breakthrough. Indeed, no effective treatment or cure has yet been discovered. Because of its reputation for slow progress, it remains underfunded. This situation is a shame because truly remarkable research is being done, and changing that reality is the passion and focus for many in the research community. Really, all that stands between where we our now and finding an effective treatment is money.
So I humbly ask for your support for this very worthy cause - both financial and with your thoughts and prayers - for all of us volunteering and riding, for those searching for a cure, but mostly for those who have been diagnosed with this cruel disease. Let's make a big push against it.
