I am participating in the Lowcountry Walk to Defeat ALS on November 04, 2017 in honor of my father, Larry Meana, who is currently battling ALS.
Every dollar we can raise for research may help him and others prolong their lives. He is currently awaiting breakthrough new medication that he will need to take intravenously for the rest of his life. This new drug was partly funded by the all the money raised by the Ice Bucket Challenge! It is currently the only potential treatment for victims of ALS. Currently my father is losing his ability to speak and breath. He can only breath laying down if he is on a breathing machine. He must sit leaning forward at all times or he can not breath. We are blessed that he still has mobility and muscle control in his lower body.
I am walking for Dad and all others with this devastating disease and I need you on my team!!
Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS — it robs a person of the ability to walk, speak, eat,and eventually breathe. And what’s even worse is that right now, there’s no cure.
Will you join me and join the movement to cure ALS? It’s easy to register online!
Thank you and I can’t wait to have you by my side at the Walk!
PS – If you can’t make it on November 04, 2017 – please consider making a donation towards our goal of $1,750.00.
