I am walking in honor of Lesly Shaha who we lost to ALS November 28, 2017. Lelsy was a loving and caring wife and friend. She loved animals with a passion, especially her dogs Buddy and Auggie. She was strong, brave, and always there when somebody needed her. She was everyone's best advocate, especially mine. She liked fairies and mystical things, and loved crafts, sewing and old movies.
I first met Lesly in Junior High School in 1967, we dated through High School and the first year of Junior College. We went our own ways until 2002 when we met again. We married in 2003. Lelsy always knew we were meant to be together, so did I.
Please join us in honoring Lesly by walking with Lesly's Legs on September 14th, 2019 at the State Capital Walk to Defeat ALS, and help us bring awareness and find a cure for this awful disease..
Why We Need Your Help
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.
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
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!
