My mom Toni Roybal lost her battle to ALS in June and I want to help raise money to find a cure. This disease is extremely aggressive and heartbreaking; and watching my mom suffer through it was devastating. She passed away just 6 months after diagnosis. The ALS association was an amazing help and provided us with so many things that my mom needed as her disease progressed. Without the ALS association I don't know how we would've gotten through it, so I want to help repay the favor and help other families in need as well.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
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.
That’s why we’re participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS. To bring hope. To raise awareness. To provide resources and services to families free of charge. To help unlock the mystery of ALS and find the key to treatments a cure. Will you join us?
Amyotrophiclateral 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 a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need. Join the movement to provide help and hope today!
