About Me – The ALS Walk 2015

 

So…I just wanted to share this with my fans.

On 10/31/2015, I’m joining hundreds of walkers for The ALS Association’s Walk to Defeat ALS®.  This is a cause that is very close to my heart. My God-father, a very wonderful man, passed away from ALS last year. I am joining my God-mother this year to walk in memory of him.

For those that do not know what ALS is, ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a deadly illness with no known cause or cure.
It affects the motor neurons in a person’s brain and spinal cord. When the motor neurons die, the muscles waste away. Gradually, a person is robbed of the ability to walk, speak, eat, and eventually breathe. Upon diagnosis, doctors give ALS patients only two to five years to live.

And that’s why I’m walking – for those who can’t.
