Help Defeat Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS)

CaptureOn Thursday June 18th, the Water Street Brewing Company in Binghamton, New York, is hosting their second annual Defeat ALS Night. The event is being held between 4 and 11pm, and patrons will have the opportunity to win merchandise.  But everyone’s a winner when you can enjoy great food, drink “a pint or 3”, and know that your money is going to fight this dreaded disease.

For more information, please click here…

If you’re not able to make it on-site, please know that donations can be made to Amell’s Army, a group of walkers who are honoring Steve Amell, as they participate in a Walk to Defeat ALS on August 10th, 2013.  The event serves as the ALS Association’s biggest, and raises funds to sustain care services and support research for much of the next year.

Amell’s Army

If you knew Steve you would agree he was one who always had a positive outlook on life. When he was diagnosed as having ALS in March of 2010 he took it in stride and lived each day with a smile never complaining about his circumstance.  He would say, “these are the cards I was dealt” and he would go along playing them well.

At his sixtieth birthday celebration in February, ALS had taken his voice but he had a computer attached to his wheelchair which he used to communicate with others. That day he was in his glory showing each person how he was able to type using his eyes and then the computer would say what he typed. He so enjoyed that day communicating with all of his friends.

The computer Steve used was provided by the ALS Association from their loan closet. This is why we walk so that others who suffer from this disease might receive assistance like that given to Steve.

We lost Steve in March 2012. He is deeply missed by all.

Why We Need Your Help

Often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, 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 an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.

Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.

This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease yet it still costs loved ones an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.

Please consider a donation today…
