This is our second year at the ALS Walk for Charlotte's Web of Hope. Charlotte was diagnosed in September of 2017. It has been very difficult for all of us to see her go from a bubbly, chatty, very social lady to not being able to talk or eat. What is more difficult is that there is still very little understanding of what causes this horrible disease, and there is no treatment or cure. It’s more devastating to find out that until the 2014 Ice Bucket Challenge, very little money was spent on research due to the lack of ALS awareness. The good news is, tremendous progress has been made in recent years. There is hope that the outlook for those diagnosed with ALS will soon change for the better. Please join us this year in support of Charlotte's Web of Hope by walking with us on October 5th or by donating to make a difference in the lives of everyone affected by ALS. Thank you for your continued support and prayers. All the love and support from family and friends is what’s helping her and our entire family stay strong. Remember to enjoy each day and cherish every moment you have with your loved ones.

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?
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 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. Please join the movement to provide help and hope today!
